We have another "scientific consensus" on our hands!
All you peasants shut up and get in line to those ovens.
“Call for Action” = “Call for $$$$$$$$$$$”
Gee.... ships have been dragging anchors through coral reefs for, well ever since the first boat was made.
You would think it would all be gone by now.
Any Indian or Chinese “scientists” there?
Saw an NGO video awhile ago where they claimed that because of a huge sea level DROP, the Great Barrier Reef was completely exposed for a great period of time and died completely.
YET, today there is a very much alive Great Barrier Reef. Go figure.
When I was in Key West this winter, the locals were as pleased as punch about the coral. The coral had stopped dying and was spawning! So the coral is adapting.
I heard it was the lion fish destroying the reef.
It’s always something.
Out of my well of ignaorance, I ask: How does an elevated atmospheric CO2 level adversely affect coral growth?
The biggest red flag for such things is that when any problem or potential problem is noted, a *real* environmentalist will say, “Okay, let’s make more”; but the agenda driven fakes will always say, “Let’s make everybody do with less!”
Importantly, *only* the “Okay, let’s make more” solution ever works, because it is honestly trying to solve a problem. The “Let’s make everybody do with less” crowd are not really concerned with the problem, and are indifferent to whether it is solved at all. They want government rationing and control as an end in itself.
A great recent example of this was when someone noticed that the “arable ocean” off the west coast was pretty much devoid of life for numerous reasons. The “do with less” scoundrels decreed that there must be an end to fishing and most use of coastal waters, calling for massive government regulation.
Real environmentalists, on the other hand, about a dozen of them who scuba dived, got together a bunch of empty cut bleach bottles with string tied to them and bricks, and put runners of giant sea kelp in each one. Then they planted them at just the right depth offshore.
Kelp grows at a fantastic rate when it gets established, and soon there were thick beds of kelp up and down the coast. And shortly thereafter, the kelp beds were full of all kinds of sea life. Problem solved. Without government involvement or regulation, or high taxes.
In the case of coral reef, it is now known that coral is attracted to undersea cable with a tiny current running through it, and clusters around it and grows at a much faster rate than normal.
So make an offshore grid of cable, with its ends running onshore, and run a small current through it. Before long you have the makings of an inexpensive coral reef where there was none. Problem solved.
