Global Mean Sea Levels Continue to rise unabated and are at record levels

Global Mean Sea Levels Continue to rise unabated and are at record levels

The oceans absorb more than 90% of the energy trapped by greenhouse gases and 25% of anthropogenic CO2 emissions, making them warmer and more acidic. For each 3-month period until September 2018, ocean heat content was the highest or second highest on record. Global Mean Sea Level from January to July 2018 was around 2 to 3 mm higher than the same period in 2017.

Ocean 🌊 heat at record levels in 2018 & sea level rise continued unabated. The true debate lies in the solutions and in mobilizing the social and political will to act upon our knowledge. Deciding not to act is a choice itself, and one that we cannot correct later.  Because the longer we wait, the worse the outcomes will be.
