RECORD OCEAN HEAT CHANGES EVERYTHING
Posted on: Tue 14 Feb 2023
In this Radio Ecoshock interview, Alex Smith talks to Dr. Kevin Trenberth, a Distinguished Scholar at the U.S. National Center for Atmospheric Research. He also works with the University of Auckland. Kevin was a lead author of the 2001 and 2007 IPCC Scientific Assessment of Climate Change.
Kevin outlines once again, like last year’s new record for global marine heat, these hotter seas come despite three years of the La Nina condition, which works to cool the sea. Extra heat caused by human greenhouse gases have overcome even the strongest cooling system in the ocean.
