Submission + - Study find Oceans Significantly Warming

shmG writes: The upper layer of Earth's ocean has warmed since 1993, indicating a strong climate change signal, according to a new study. The study, co-authored by an international team of scientists, said that the energy stored is enough to power nearly 500 100-watt light bulbs for each of the roughly 6.7 billion people on the planet.

"The ocean is the biggest reservoir for heat in the climate system," said Willis. "So as the planet warms, we're finding that 80 to 90 percent of the increased heat ends up in the ocean."
