The brief video below, by NASA, explains how ocean currents absorb heat and greenhouse gases. Which is great, until so much is absorbed that the currents slow down and their ability to absorb heat diminishes.

For more info about climate change or global warming, (yes, there's a difference*) visit NASA's Global Climate Change website.

Or visit Earth Right Now "Your Planet Is Changing. We're On It."

*Global warming relates to the warming of the average surface temperature of the planet. Climate change includes global warming, plus all the effects it has on the planet, such as glacial melting, sea level rise, changes in plant growth, etc.
