More than 90% of the effect of global warming is being absorbed by the oceans, with the seas absorbing energy equivalent to a nuclear bomb every second, a new study has found.
New research has analysed records going back to 1871, and found that only a tiny amount of the heat trapped by climate change is affecting the land and ice caps.
Most of the energy is being stored in the ocean depths and could drive sea-level rise and increase the power of hurricanes.
The researchers found that lobal warming of the oceans of 436 x 1021 Joules has occurred from 1871 to present (roughly 1000 times annual worldwide human primary energy consumption).
The researchers found that comparable levels of warming happened from 1920-1945 and 1990-2015.
Prof Laure Zanna who led the international team of researchers said: Our reconstruction is in line with other direct estimates and provides evidence for ocean warming before the 1950s.

No mention that we’ve had the fewest hurricanes and tornadoes in a while over the last couple of years.
It is like some mysterious atomic energy source is heating things up during the day, but it stops at night. It MUST be caused by human activity because it is warmest during the daylight when people are moving around. And at night, when people are inactive, things cool down.
If only we could find the engine for all this warming. Someday, the answer will see the light of day!
Calling Trofim Lysenko....pleas pick up the courtesy phone. Agitprop alert.
“Global warming is heating oceans with power of an atomic bomb every second”
Fish stew for dinner...yum.
This is the same Yahoo that has “How I became a woman by Michelle Obama” pop up when you first log in?
Well, there you go, Nuclear bombs are pretty safe then, as long as you only use one each day.
What’s that smell, crapaganga? ;)
...and sea creatures with carbonaceous shells live and die, their shells fall to the ocean floor and eventually becoming limestone, then perhaps marble if it is metamorphosed, thereby sequestering the carbon again.
Weird that I was reading a report from a few weeks ago about the bottom of the ocean getting much colder.
Brainwashing is real and it works.....SOS.
oops, my bad! Apparently we can blow off a nuke every SECOND of the day, and all it does is inconveniently slightly alter the temperature of a infitismal fraction every few decades.... Who knew???
The bombings start in 5 minutes!
Oh, good typo to me... Ganga. Koff!
I wonder if they write this hilarious stuff because they know that the younger American generations are so stupid because of their K-12 indoctrination that they’ll just buy anything...or if they just have to make up on-topic s**t to fill up space.
I think we should all buy the ocean some sun block.
Liberals, when you give up your private Jets, your multiple mansions and your wealth, I’ll believe you...Until then, STFU...
