Warming of oceans due to climate change is unstoppable, say US scientists

“I think of it more like a fly wheel or a freight train. It takes a big push to get it going but it is moving now and will contiue to move long after we continue to pushing it”…Globally 90% of excess heat caused by rise in GHG’s(greenhouse gas emissions) is absorbed by oceans…More than 20 countries in Europe set new heat records, with Africa, Asia and Australia also experiencing near-record heat. The east coast of North America was the only region to experience cooler than average conditions…Alaska experienced temperatures 18F(10degC) warmer than average. Spring break-up came to the Arctic 20-30 days earlier than the 20th century average.
