Rising temperatures continue to melt records. The past decade was the hottest on record. Scientists tell us that ocean temperatures are now rising at the equivalent of five Hiroshima bombs a second. One million species are in near-term danger of extinction. Our planet is burning.
We can't overlook our oceans. "The world's oceans are now heating at the same rate as if five Hiroshima atomic bombs were dropped into the water every second."
Scientists compare rate of ocean warming to 'dropping five Hiroshima bombs every second'
73 years ago today, the U.S. dropped the world's first atomic bomb on Japan's Hiroshima, killing over 140,000 people.
