Blister in the sun

Interesting reading indeed, but the question is what can we do to stop it beyond the breeding programmes alread out there?

"Last fall, marine biologists reported that we’re currently in the midst of one of the largest coral die-offs they’d ever seen, and the third global bleaching event on record. This week at the Ocean Sciences Conference in New Orleans, NOAA will offer its first big update on the situation. And it ain’t good."


"In 1998, a massive underwater heat wave killed 18% of corals around the world in the first global bleaching event. This year’s coral bleaching is expected to impact 38% of the world’s coral reefs, decimating over 4,630 square miles (12,000 square kilometers) of reefs by 2016."
