Record levels of annual growth of coral on Australia's the Great Barrier Reef (GBR) continues to astound scientists who had prdicted for decades that the dying of the world's largest coral reef would trigger an environmental disaster in the Pacific Ocean. Major increases recorded across large areas of the reef, reported in the 2021-22 annual summary from the Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS), show levels of coral cover in the northern and central areas of the reef were at their highest levels over the past 36 years of monitoring.
The growth ought to have environmentalists jumping for joy, but
rather bizarrely is being downplayed by governments and United Nations environment agencies with hardly any mention of this phenomenon in the
mainstream media. The decline and death of the world’s coral reefs is a long - time standby scare story for Net Zero promoters. As late as October
2020, the BBC was telling stories about the Reef losing half of its coral. The Guardian was one of the first to set the coral doomsday ball rolling when George Monbiot told its readers in 1999 that the “imminent total destruction of the world’s coral reefs is not a scare story”. Noting the recent record growth, the newspaper added that “global heating could jeopardise recovery”. They never give up do they?
This notion that global warming will cause corals to die is just one of the many big lies used by pseudo - scientists to prop up their Climate Change scare and keep the research grant money rolling in . Tropical coral, a close cousin of the jellyfish, thrives in waters between 24°C and 32°C. It is highly adaptable but dislike sudden changes in temperature, which are usually caused by natural weather oscillations such as El Niño events, but not by the kind of gradual change that would be caused by increased atmospheric Carbon Dioxide levels, were there any recent increases in global mean temperature to cause them.
Research carried out by the Austrialian Insitute of Marine Science (AIMS) shows coral quickly recovers when normal localised conditions return. In fact, coral often grows faster in warmer waters nearer the equator than the GBR. The big agitprop lie suggests minor long-term sea temperatures changes will wipe out the coral, but the scientific evidence suggests otherwise.
As usual the sciencetits called us 'conspiracy theorists' when we said the dying of coral was only happening in mathematical models of coral and was a scam. Turns out the conspiracy theorists were telling the truth again.
