This is wrong! Why can't Australia understand that it will be a disaster when the reef is completely dead and gone? This makes me ill!

This is absolutely heartbreaking to read. I am so pissed off at the lack of interest that governments seem to show when it comes to the protection of our world's greatest ecological treasures. Let's just keep on burning the coal, dredging the seabed, dumping toxic waste, burning down the forests, kill off all of our most incredible animal species and fracture the f...c out of the Earth. What? Is there something wrong with that?
