Answer:

The ocean absorbs the majority of the sun's energy that enters earths atmosphere and is not reflected back out into space and the ocean's current transfer that energy to different places around the world, changing the climate. For example, the gulf stream carries warm water from the equator up to Europe which is why Europe is warmer than Canada even though they are at similar latitudes.
