Image Descriptions (1 of 2):
1: View of Earth from space cutting across diagonally so that Earth is taking up the bottom right corner. A thin red stripe stretches above the atmosphere and fades at one end. White text on the slide reads: As the world warms, what happens to the extra heat and CO2?
2: White text over an image of Earth from space. A smaller panel on the right shows a bright red swath taken from a sea surface temperature data visualization. Text reads: As more greenhouse gases are added to Earth’s atmosphere, our planet gets warmer. Most of this heat is absorbed by the ocean.
3: A haze of bright red covers most of the image. The red fades into orange and yellow towards the top. White text reads: So far, the ocean has absorbed around 90% of the added heat from decades of global warming.
4: Satellite image of Earth. A tan strip of land lines the left side. A blue-green ocean swirls on the right. White text on screen reads: As the ocean warms, it alters the global climate – from global temperature to weather patterns to sea level.
