Possible Evidence Global Warming Has Slowed
Global air temperatures have recently stopped rising proportionately to the increase in greenhouse gases in our atmosphere. But where is the heat going?

A new NASA study from the Jet Propulsion laboratory has also revealed that the ocean abyss has not warmed in the past few years. If the air and the ocean aren't warming, scientists will have to look elsewhere to discover where this missing energy and heat is going.

Crystal Dilworth is here to explain ​what does this means for global warming.
