    A new paper finds that there is already enough genetic variety spread across the Great Barrier Reef to adapt to the imagined “unprecedented” warming coming in the next two centuries. We don’t need to rely on random mutations or consider fantasy solutions of man-made oceanic sunscreens, mass sunshades, or giant reef fans. Corals already have […]

    Heat-tolerant genes may spread through coral populations fast enough to give the marine creatures a tool to survive another 100-250 years of warming in our oceans. Can genetic adaptation in reef-building corals keep pace with the current rate of sea surface warming? Here we combine population genomics, biophysical modeling, and evolutionary simulations to predict future […]

    Alarmist claims of near-future coral reef dissolution, courtesy of the ever-hyped ocean acidification hypothesis, have dissolved away thanks to the seminal work of McCulloch et al. The world’s corals are much more resilient to changes in their environment than acidification alarmists have claimed them to be. Paper Reviewed McCulloch, M.T., D’Olivo, J.P., Falter, J., Holcomb, M. and […]

    Coral reef bleaching may be easing after three years of high ocean temperatures, the longest such period since the 1980s, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said Monday.

    Scientists have discovered a population of “super corals” that appear to have become resistant to extreme environmental conditions — being able to survive and thrive in hot, acidic and low-oxygen waters. And they now plan to search for more climate-adaptable coral populations within the Great Barrier Reef. The “super corals” discovered within a New Caledonian […]

  • Great Reef Hysteria Exposed? Reef Tourism Operators Find Less Than 5% Of Coral Dead Due To ‘Extreme’ Bleaching

    REEF tourism operators have found less than five per cent of coral has died off — compared to the 50 to 60 per cent estimated by scientists — under “extreme” mass coral bleaching on the northern Great Barrier Reef. Latest findings exclusively obtained by The Courier-Mail show coral mortality in the outer shelf reefs north […]

    In 2003, researchers declared Coral Castles dead. Then in 2015, a team of marine biologists was stunned and overjoyed to find the giant coral reef once again teeming with life.
