A new study found that over the last 60 years the intermediate depths of the Pacific Ocean have warmed 15 times faster than in the past 10,000 years.
This could explain the “slowdown” in the warming of the atmosphere—temperatures haven’t been climbing as quickly because the oceans are storing more heat. 
But while the media have loved to cover this “pause” or “slowdown” in atmospheric temperatures, they have spent no time covering the warming of the oceans.
This is even more problematic because the “slowdown” is only looking at a small window of time. So the media covering this issue are giving a very incomplete picture of what climate change and global warming could look like, while encouraging people who are skeptical of global warming. 
By failing to cover the warming of the oceans, they are encouraging this misunderstanding even more.

    And warmer oceans are a problem, for many reasons.
