Oceans Are Warmer – level 1

23-01-2019 15:00

In 1958, people start to record ocean temperatures. In 2018, the oceans are the hottest ever.

This is written in a report. The authors of the report say that this is proof of climate change. They say that this is a big problem. They also say that the oceans are getting warmer very fast.

Sea water can go up. There can be strong storms. There can be heavy rains.

Difficult words: record (measure and write down), report (an official document about something), proof (evidence, a thing which shows that something is true).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
