Improving level of oceans is detrimental to planet

A record increase in sea level due to global warming and the subsequent increase in the temperature of the world ocean is a danger to the balance of oxygen on the planet, the lives of people and the sea fauna.

annually on June 8, World Ocean Day is celebrated. The date was established by the UN on February 12, 2009 in order to draw attention to the negative consequences of a person’s actions on the ocean.

This year, the World Ocean Day was chosen by the “Ocean Planet: Times are changing” to emphasize the problem of the negative consequences of global warming on the flora and fauna of the World Ocean.

According to the World Meteorological Organization (VMO), the Earth temperature increased in 2022 by 1.15 degrees compared to the pre -industrial period. For the past 8 years, have become the warmest in history.

The level of the oceans continues to rise due to global warming. In particular, the reason is an increase in water temperature in the ocean and melting of glaciers.

According to WMO, last year the sea level in the world has reached the highest level over the past 30 years.

If we consider the data over the past 30 years, the growth rate of water level in the past 10 years has been much higher than in the first ten.

At such a pace until 2100, the level of the oceans will increase from 1 to 1.6 meters.

Oceans can absorb up to 30 percent of the global carbon emissions, however, an increase in acidity jeopardizes marine organisms and ecosystems, and as a result of food safety.

According to the UN, 900 million people living in coastal areas will suffer from increasing the water level in the oceans. Almost every tenth person is in a serious danger zone.

In addition, an increase in sea level threatens the destruction of 90 percent of the population of large fish and 50 percent of coral reefs.
