How Hot or Cold the Ocean

Covering about 70 percent of our planet’s surface, the ocean acts as a global thermostat, storing energy from the sun, keeping Earth’s temperature changes moderate and keeping climate change gradual. In fact, the ocean can store as much heat in its top 10 feet as the entire atmosphere does.

What happens in the atmosphere has usually the most effect on where humanity lives but the ocean really controls the world’s climate more.
