How is it contributing to global warming?
What is Global Warming?:
Rising Temperatures Around the World
Warmer oceans put coastal communities at risk, increase infrastructure costs, endanger polar creatures, threaten coral reefs and fisheries, and accelerate overall warming trend. Coral bleaching has increased significantly in the past 30 years, causing death and severe damage to 1/3 of the world's corals.
The two hot spots where we have rising ocean temperatures are Solomon Islands and Elliott Key, FL.

What the Future Holds
In the Solomon Islands, scientists project that the temperatures of the water could increase 3.1-3.6 degrees Fahrenheit. The availability of fish species are going to decline.
