Climate change disrupts ocean mixing that helps store world's excess heat, CO2

Increasing temperature contrast between the density of the ocean layers makes mixing harder, so oxygen, heat and carbon arent able to penetrate deep seas.

Greenhouse gas emissions can lead to sea level rise of 40 cm by the end of this century

Even in the lower emissions scenario, the Greenland sheet would raise oceans by around three cm by 2100 — beyond what is already destined to melt due to the additional 1C of warming humans have caused in the industrial age.
