An alarming new study reveals that the lakes around the world are warming. On average, freshwater lakes appear to be warming faster than the world’s oceans, according to a release from NASA.

The study has shown that the water in lakes all around the world is rapidly warming by an average 0.3 degrees Celsius each decade. While this may not seem like much, the temperature change is wreaking havoc on lake ecosystems, causing massive algal blooms and devastating fish kills.
