"With 70% of the planet covered by water, the seas are important drivers of Earth’s global climate:" NASA wrote as a part of its post on greenhouse gases.

“Our ocean is changing,” the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) wrote while posting a visualisation depicting how greenhouse gases impact Earth's water bodies. The space agency wrote that the gases produced by human activities are altering the ocean.

Elaborating on the visualisation, NASA shared that the different colours depict the average temperature for the sea surface currents. “With warmer colours (red, orange, and yellow) representing warmer temperatures and cooler colours (green and blue) representing cooler temperatures,” the agency added.
