How fast is Earth REALLY warming? Study says monitoring ocean heat and sea levels is the most accurate way - as it reveals top 10 hottest years were all in the last decade



Climate change, or global warming, is largely driven by human activity, as carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases are released, causing an accumulation of heat in the Earth's climate system. 
Previously, global average surface temperature has been widely used as a key metric to understand how fast Earth is warming - but a new study suggests monitoring ocean heat content change and sea level rise could be a better way. 
Extra heat trapped by increasing greenhouse gases mainly ends up in the oceans, where more than 90 per cent is stored, so for researchers to measure global warming, they... read more
