New fabrics grown in fermentation tanks could prevent tiny plastic fibers polluting the oceans

New materials grown in laboratories may be an alternative to the materials currently dumping large quantities of plastic into the world's oceans. Synthetic textiles such as polyester are a permanent substitute for natural fabrics such as wool and cotton, but they also contribute to the trillions of microplastics that populate the world's oceans. Concern about this form of pollution is …

Climate change will soon change the color of our oceans. Here is how

By the end of the century, the oceans of the world will become bluer and greener thanks to a warming climate, scientists said Monday. And the color shift will be almost imperceptible to the human eye could give an indication of the profound changes for a wide range of marine life. At the center of the phenomenon are tiny marine …

Scientists warn that oceans will change color in less than 100 years

Oceans will change their color by the end of the century as climate change significantly changes phytoplankton in the world's oceans, according to a new study. With rising sea temperatures, the aforementioned period increases by up to 4.8 degrees Fahrenheit – Plankton growth is increased, bringing the blues and greens of the ocean to life as sunlight interacts with water …

New report in Science says oceans heat up 40% faster than we knew

(Newser) – The oceans heat up about 40% faster than previously measured, scientists say – which seems to confirm only the biggest headache in the world. Published in Science Recent reviews suggest that ocean temperatures are more in line with gloomy climate model simulations than scientists knew. The new measurements confirm that oceans could warm to 1.5 degrees Celsius and …

The oceans are warming faster than we thought, and scientists suggest that we prepare for the effects

The oceans are actually 40 to 50 percent faster than the latest IPCC report. (iStock) The oceans are warming up faster than the climate records suggest. This emerges from a new synthesis of temperature observations published this week. The latest report by the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change has produced a very conservative estimate of the rise in …

Oceans heat up faster than expected, record in 2018 | news

The oceans of the world are warming at an accelerated pace and are becoming faster than previously thought. They set a new temperature record for 2018 as global warming threatens a variety of marine life, scientists warn. New measurements, supported by an international network of 3,900 floats deployed in the oceans since 2000, has shown increased warming since 1971, according …
