Barrier Reef 'can adapt' to warmer climate

Hi all,

I thought this was certainly something to share with you all. It's an article that in very brief terms talks about new thoughts on special algae in corals that allow them to tolerate heat stress far more than previously expected. The idea is that the reef will survive the current warmer climate.

Certainly sounds nice. Bleaching part of a corals normal life cycle? Hard to say.

Would be interested to keep following the story to see how further reasearch progresses.

Check this pod from current.tv that seems to discredit the idea put forth in your article.


Or you could just do some googling on Phoenix Islands and Coral Reef death and you should get the story.

Sounds like more "fuzzy science" from "experts" that are probably funded in part by corporations with far less then perfect environmental policies. It makes me think of those scientists who get up in front of congress and swear that global warming is natural and human beings and carbon emissions have nothing to do with it.
