Coral Reefs Dying from Global Warming

Mat Probasco of the Associated Press reported on October, 25, 2006, that “researchers fear more than half the world’s coral reefs could die in less than 25 years and say global warming may at least partly to blame.”

“Last year’s coral loss in the Caribbean waters supports predictions that 60 percent of the world’s coral could die within a quarter century, said Tyler Smith of the University of the Virgin Islands.”

“Up to 30 percent of the world’s coral reefs have died in the last 50 years, and another 30 percent are severely damaged, said Smith, who studies coral health in the U.S. Virgin Islands and collaborates with researchers globally.”
