Warming Oceans

NPR's Richard Harris reports on new findings that the world's oceans are warming. Heretofore there has been strong evidence showing a warming of the atmosphere and land, probably in large part due to industrial emissions of greenhouse gases. The ocean was something of a mystery -- was it a heat sink or heat emitter? Evidence suggests human activity is warming it.
