Offbeat  (tags: environment, protection, pictures, photos )

Scientists warn that more than 50 per cent of the Great Barrier Reef's coral has been wiped out over the past 30 years, and predict that another half of the remainder could have gone by 2022 - meaning the reef will have shrunk to just a third of its size

Ya know Carrie I don't understand you, your constant harrassment is annoying and I do wish you would just avoid my articles if they upset you so much. I don't bother you in your offbeat articles, because that is your business. So why can't you do the same for me? What did I ever do to you? Please just do me a favor and leave me alone. Thnx!

Parts of the coral reefs in the Caribbean have been depleted and much is under threat from various things such as ocean acidification. Coral reefs like rain forests help to regulate temperature. They moderate the current's direction and speed with which storms gather and intensify due to the currents merging and creating temperature and barometric change. Depleted coral reefs around the world combined with the depletion of rain forests and forests in general are major factors along with fossil fuels contributing to climate change. If you have ever wondered why Haiti gets damaged yet the Dominican Republic doesn't it is due to those two factors. Haiti cut down too many trees.
Good article Cher.
