Planet much more sensitive to fossil-fuel emissions than past studies have shown, scientists say.

The world’s oceans have absorbed far more heat than previously estimated, suggesting global warming and climate change could accelerate faster than predicted, according to new research.

The results suggest over the past 27 years, the world’s oceans have retained 60 per cent more heat each year than research teams had previously thought.This represents an enormous amount of additional energy stored on Earth, indicating the planet is far more sensitive to fossil-fuel emissions than past studies have shown. Read more.
