    Humans caused temperatures in world’s warmest seas to rise

    London: Greenhouse gas emissions have caused the Indo-Pacific Warm Pool – the largest area of warm water in the world – to get hotter and increase in size, scientists have warned. The pool stretches about 14,484 km along the equator and 2,414 km from north to south. It is an area of ocean with an average temperature of more than 28 degrees Celsius and can reach up to 30 degrees in places.

    London: Earth could get much warmer than expected in future, say scientists who have reconstructed past global warming and carbon cycle on earth 56 million years ago. Global warming from greenhouse gas emissions depends not only on the size of the emissions, but also on the warming effect that the extra amount of gas has on the atmosphere. This effect, called climate sensitivity, is usually defined as the warming caused by the
