Rising sea levels and abnormally high sea surface temperatures have been linked to global warming. Powerful rain and snow storms—and, ironically, intense drought periods—are a well-known consequence of a warmer planet.
Over the past 30 years there has been a pattern of increasingly higher average temperatures for the entire planet (ucsusa.org). In fact, the first decade of this century (2001–2010) was the hottest decade recorded since reliable records began in the late 1800s. These rising temperatures—are what we refer to as global warming.
The ocean transports trash, nutrients, radioactive waste, dissolved carbon dioxide and heat all around the globe. Enormous vortices of water, measuring 60 miles across, spin their way across the ocean’s. Each vortice is like an upside down mountain of water, held together by its own rotation and extending about 3,000 feet beneath the ocean’s surface. Vortices can carry more than 30 times the amount of water dumped by all the world’s rivers into the ocean.
What is the relationship between global warming, climate, and weather? After decades of tracking, measuring and developing working theories, scientists are beginning to theorize that vortices may be directly correlated to global warming.
There is much we still don’t understand about climate change.
Make Change Happen
We can reduce global warming emissions and ensure communities have the resources they need to withstand the effects of climate change. Please help support sustainable solutions for a healthy, safe, and sustainable future.

Take action today to support water quality monitoring in your community by contacting your local government officials and ask them to support water monitoring legislation in your community.
The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is failing to protect America’s drinking water supply. Many new toxins leach into our water supply, and yet there are no new mandates to regulate any of these new chemicals.
