Oceans Are Warmer – level 2

23-01-2019 15:00

In 1958, people began recording ocean temperatures. According to a new report, ocean temperatures in 2018 were the hottest ever.

The authors of the report say that this is solid proof of climate change. They say that this is a big problem for everybody. The authors are the same scientists who also published another report last week. It says that oceans are getting warmer faster than people thought.

This can lead to problems like rising sea levels, heavier rainfall, stronger storms, and melting polar ice.

Difficult words: report (an official document about something), solid (strong), proof (evidence, a thing which shows that something is true).

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