rising sea levels

Sea Levels Are Rising and Here’s Why

Climate change is still the number one cause of rising sea levels. Burning fossil fuel adds more greenhouse gas into the atmosphere, which traps heats and increases the temperature of the earth.

Climate Change: What Does It Mean For Marine Life?

Climate change has had a startling effect on the rising temperatures of the oceans. Scientists predict that water temperatures will hit 1.4 – 5.8◦c by the end of the century. This change in the weather and ocean temperature is having a fundamental effect on the marine life that depends on it.
