Explain the basic physics of how the increase in the ocean's temperature is making the weather worse.
Explainging the effects of climate change so tha people understand. This is not about who is the cause; nature or human, because there will always be disagreement on that argument. People don't seem to understand how the storms are getting worse. The storms are getting worse due to basic physics.
Everyone knows that water is temperature sensitive. Throw a cup of water out on a hot sidewalk and watch it evaporate. The temperature of the ocean has increased by two to three degrees. The oceans also have the largest surface area. Increase in temperature results in an increase in evaporation. Water vapor has mass, which is basically weight. Put a cloud in a jar and the water weight of the cloud is massive. The law of motion is a body in motion tends to stay in motion, a body at rest tends to stay at rest, until an external force is applied. Force = mass times accelertion. Momentum = mass times velocity. In both equations, increase the mass and the Force and Momentum are increased.
