Green house gases known as ‘sinks’ accumulated in oceans and the earth’s crust are slowly and gradually releasing their gases leading to an accelerated rate of global warming. The oceans have been absorbing more carbon dioxide than they have been releasing and this has paved way to oceans warming up as well.
