Scientific studies show that global warming is causing irreversible damage to the Mesoamerican Barrier Reef System, the world's second largest coral reef, yet efforts to protect this biologically and economically vital ecosystem remain insufficient.

Coral needs a very precise balance of water temperature, depth, turbidity, and pH to survive. Climate change is delivering alteration to nearly every one of these factors. The coral reefs are a vital part of the oceanic food chain.

This sounds terrible. The world has to reduce climate changing emissions significantly, and quickly. People must use much less oil and eat much less meat.
