More and more evidences have attributed the record number of hurricanes over the last couple of years to global warming. Using buoys that transmit readings directly, as well as remote sensing satellites, researchers have found record temperatures in the gulf and Atlantic Ocean. Based on those studies, the ocean temperature over the last 50 years has increased by one degree.

The other study has found that the salmon in the North Atlantic Ocean have lost significant weight, suggesting that the salmon are essentially starving from insufficient amounts in available prey. Scientists have attribute the low availability of prey to rising ocean surface temperatures.
