World's oceans warming at increasingly faster rate, new study finds | Oliver Milman | The Guardian

World's oceans warming at increasingly faster rate, new study finds | Oliver Milman | The Guardian | green investing | Scoop.it

The world’s oceans are warming at a quickening rate, with the past 20 years accounting for half of the increase in ocean heat content that has occurred since pre-industrial times, a new study has found.

US scientists discovered that much of the extra heat in the ocean is buried deep underwater, with 35% of the additional warmth found at depths below 700 meters. This means far more heat is present in the far reaches of the ocean than 20 years ago, when it contained just 20% of the extra heat produced from the release of greenhouse gases since the industrial revolution.

The paper, published in Nature Climate Change, sheds further light on the vast quantities of heat being absorbed by the world’s oceans.

Graphene 3D Starts Sales of Black Magic 3D - Here is how to understand the relevance - 1) We all own 2D printers 2) Those printers use ink 3) HP, Cannon, Brother sells billions of dollars of ink 4) In 5-6 years, 3D Printers will be commonplace, in 10 they will be ubiquitious 5) The money is in the consumables.  6) Graphene 3D Lab allows us to print 3D objects that have electronic components.


Remember the Star Trek replicator? Earl Grey Tea, Hot? Well, if you the design on a computer, you can manufacture it at home.  This is as big as computers, the internet and cell phones.  I am advising everyone to sign up to receive Graphene Lab info at www.graphene3DLab.com
