Those questions are all very difficult. We are
still learning about how temperature affects the
ocean. It's easy to measure the surface
temperature of the ocean, but the weather and
climate keep changing and the ocean is big, so
it's hard to know how even the surface temperature
of the ocean changes.
We are finding that some of the heat goes deep
into the ocean, which makes the situation even
much more complex.
Think of all the currents in the ocean, both
the currents near the surface and the deep
Also, who is going to be measuring the waste
at all places? You have a good question, but
I think there is no simple answer, except that the
amount of heat is probably only a tiny amount of
the total heat. I think you don't need to worry
too much about it.
