We have watched the dramatic decline of these spectacular underwater worlds.
Exxon’s executives and their allies robbed us of a generation’s worth of action on climate.
More than 90% of all marine species are dependent on coral reefs.
You may never see them, but coral reefs are suffering along with the rest of our planet.
The findings of Toth et al. indicate that, as we know from paleoecological studies of earlier eras, our modern coral reefs are supremely sensitive to subtle changes in climate even in the absence of local impacts like fishing and pollution.
