New York, January 16 (RHC)-- In the U.S., a new study finds ocean temperatures surged to their highest level on record last year, in another clear sign that human activity is warming the planet. 

Researchers publishing in Advances in Atmospheric Sciences found the top two kilometers of ocean water gained about 10 zettajoules of heat energy in 2022 — equivalent to 100 times the world’s annual electrical power production. Warmer ocean temperatures are tied to heat waves, droughts, more powerful hurricanes, and extreme weather events like recent flooding in California.

In related news, a new study in the journal Science confirms Exxon was fully aware of the link between fossil fuel emissions and global heating but spent decades refuting and obscuring the science in order to make maximum profits. 

The report finds that Exxon — as early as the 1970s — predicted with “breathtaking” accuracy the disastrous climate path that is now wreaking havoc around the globe.
