The Dominant Role of People

At first, this may not appear to be anything related to the topical interests of this site. I can assure you that it does.

“…for the first time, we can actually say that we’re virtually certain that the oceans have warmed, and that warming is caused not by natural processes, but by rising greenhouse gases primarily.”

Imagine. A definitive statement on rise in ocean temperatures!

“The study (Human-Induced Ocean Warming Study Addresses The ‘Dominant Role’ Of People), “Human-Induced Global Ocean Warming On Multidecadal Timescales,” was conducted by researchers in the U.S., Australia, Japan and India. Based on observations of rising upper-ocean temperatures, the researchers used improved estimates of ocean temperatures to examine the causes of our warming ocean.”

Again, humans are showing just how significant is our contribution to global living standards. In a prior post: Forest, Plants and Oceans: No Longer Able to Clean-Up Excess CO2, study results indicated that the forests, plants and oceans simply cannot continue to absorb all of the excess CO2 being emitted from human-based activities. What had been an environmental equalizer is rapidly breaking down.

Humans have a dominant role in this breakdown! Surprised?
