I have it on good authority CoT death was highly correlated with Y2k and the 70s Ice Age dooming but check that with the climate changers as they’re really big on this stuff. And you know what? Keeping in mind, that those allegedly renewable energy sources kill bats and birds by the multitudes and have reversed populations recovery of large raptors and carrion birds. Now we went through some coral bleaching episodes and that kind of stuff, but since then, what we’ve been documenting is the regrowth, the regeneration. Good for her. Image courtesy Tourism & Events Queensland. If it is local activity, such as farming activity, has the data been validated? Alan uses his own specious strawman and pretends it has relevance to the article or the comments. The study found that one-third of corals in the Great Barrier Reef died in just a nine-month span in the summer and fall of 2016. Scientists hope this year's reproductive cycle can revitalise the world's largest reef that's been degrading and dying. They were even going so far as to declare that 90% of the reef was Dead! Welcome to the coral dooming since the 1980s vs some past doomings- God help us I find it had to accept that our so called educated betters are truly that stupid. You seem to be placing a subjective value judgement onto coal, petrol, diesel, plastic and money, are you suggesting we do without them? The University may yet appeal Ridd’s win in the Federal Circuit Court. They also demean Ms. Ley and claim absurdities; “one lay person takes a quick look at one small reef”. How much change in alkaline ph was there again? Steve I hope the stupidity is a small bump in the road or God help my grandsons. The GBR is vast, manual destruction is an impossibility. Except, those children who are immaturely hung-up about other people using coal and fossil fuels never seem to give up all of civilization’s benefits themselves. “Our biggest threat is apathy. Read More. Carbon dioxide’s solubility reduces as water warms; carbonic acid also decreases as temperatures warm. I’m sure in the near future we shall read public apologies from all the reef scientists who declared the fake climate emergency. Even funner fact – there is absolutely nothing out of the ordinary about weather or climate now, nothing. According to the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, the human influence has caused a 50% decline in the overall coral bed from 1985 to 2012. Uh, no. I enjoyed both the room and food here which is fresh and locally inspired. The ASTW Conference was held at Riley, a brand new hotel in Cairns by the Crystalbrook Collection. Well here’s some lowdown on coral bleaching from Peter Ridd- If they reject that idea the press could have some fun challenging them. Fertiliser is expensive and farmers’ sons are better educated. I am one of a small and dwindling band of people who have observed the GBR [intermittently] for >60 years. But if you want to impose your opinion on others, you need to take your opinion to the ballot box where it will gain the attention it deserves. No mention of it on our Left Wing ABC broadcaster or the Fairfax papers. Of course the Barrier is not a flood barrier at all and has always had quite a different purpose which it does well. “This is the time to toughen up, be optimistic because we have actually some really great solutions going forward. I guess they just see what they want to see. None of this was by accident. Yea…. Half of it wasn’t charted. “Coral reefs are amazingly resilient systems. “I’m sure in the near future we shall read public apologies from all the reef scientists who declared the fake climate emergency.”. I did, but it was 20+ years ago. The Great Barrier Reef is 2,300 km long and can be seen from space from its position off the coast of Queensland, Australia. Observations from Queensland's ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies show detected mass depletion of every coral population in the Great Barrier Reef between 1995 and 2017, according to CNN. For this reason coral are dying day to day and some are dead in nature. UP NEXT. The latest surveys show the GBR to be as healthy and abundant as in the 1970’s: https://notrickszone.com/2019/08/19/new-gbr-study-400-coral-recovery-since-2014-with-2017-growth-rates-comparable-to-the-1970s/. 100 % dependent! The truth is somewhere in between and is not clearly known as the majority of science is being funded by those with an alarmist agenda. Some claim the number is 15%, but are unable to prove the number. Husband and wife Canadians 2007 had a great time on the reef. should take a leaf from the IPCC’s playbook. Most of the time, anywhere in the world, people do a sort of bucket list public survey. In fact, each of the 3000 individual reefs, along the entire 2000km length of the Great Barrier Reef, is a 50-100m high plateau of dead coral rubble that has built up over millennia. If Sussan Ley dived any of those reefs she would likely have had an entirely different experience. She should drag the media along too. I have tried to be tolerant of other views but I am sorry this issue is too important to be “nice” and the world is running out of time. The sea level around the Australian coast was then about 120 meters lower than it is today. The Great Barrier Reef is 2,300 km long and can be seen from space from its position off the coast of Queensland, Australia. The bloated global warming industry certainly isn’t going to say “There now, my work is done.”. they like it or not! His iinitials are N.T. Rising sea levels. Each one of those new polyps is extracting calcium carbonate from the seawater. With care, the future of Australia’s living treasure will be at least as enduring as its magnificent past. Or is it time to toughen up and work harder to protect this unique ecosystem? https://dailygalaxy.com//?s=great+barrier+reef “The spawning event is amazing,” says Dr Glen Burns. Then they go into asexual division, one into two, two into four. Great Barrier Reef dying faster than ever, scientists confirm. Sorry, your blog cannot share posts by email. Interesting series of questions Lewis. I’ll tell you why: some areas are undergoing subsidence, which means that the land SINKS. She surely has the guts to call it as it is. But it is no longer broad. Laws that Prof Peter Ridd said could decimate coastal towns up and down the state! Reefs are mainly composed of Calcium Carbonate. This guy said that, as well as this… wish he was here now to dismantle the pseudo science drivel of well funded cynical climate scientists and their prediction consensus being preferred to evidence based science. ‘The Great Barrier Reef is dying’ claims the Washington Post. in serious societal decisions … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tWr39Q9vBgo. Nothing has changed. **What a load of shit. This site uses Akismet to reduce spam.

They need to be put to real work, mining coal, perhaps? Ever walked the beach on an idyllic tropical island? – Fred Pearce The Climate Files: Climate Change is destroying the Great Barrier Reef. Similar to what happens at this site. The final session at the Australian Society of Travel Writers Annual Conference 2019 in Cairns, Queensland, was a panel discussion with Dr David Wachenfeld, Chief scientist, Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority, Wendy Morris, Chair of Tropical Tourism North Queensland and Master Reef Guide, Dr Glen Burns from Quicksilver Cruises hosted by Shelley Winkel from Tourism and Events Queensland. Using your apple tree fable the odds are one in a hundred of setting eyes on the one good apple tree. Go paddle around the ice free Arctic in your skin on wood frame kayak and get back to us. Rave reviews all round. Maybe she actually did pull her head out of the sand. Climate changes. And the situation was bad. Storms remove sand from beaches. Old pictures of 90 Mile Beach in NZ show quite a few images of wide open sand at low tide. John, you keep complaining, about the topic, but YOU never provide WHY we should ignore the Environment Minister. In November the annual coral spawning event takes place. It’s a personal experience. Sussan Ley is prepared to actually go on site and examine the evidence for herself. https://nsw.liberal.org.au/SussanLey, Please go back to the previous scenario where the reef is dying, and only a government carbon tax can save it. Which brings us back to that silly “oh… it’s cold today” ; the alleged basis for claiming Anthropogenic Global Warming” is tracking a global anomaly calculated from a global average. Only Gullible Fools Believe The Great Barrier Reef is Dying. The Great Barrier Reef is at a critical tipping point that will determine its long-term survival.. Coral bleaching as a result of global warming is a key reason for the reef's decline. Dr Wachenfeld said that it is not surprising that in an area bigger than Italy, that the reef is not all in the same condition. In recent years, things have been overwhelmingly bad for the Great Barrier Reef. Why has the Great Barrier Reef become the pin-up for doom for the global issue of climate change? The Great Barrier Reef illustrates how extensive the damage can be: Thirty percent of the coral perished in 2016, another 20 percent in 2017. Half of the Great Barrier Reef has died since 2016 — here's what happens if all coral reefs on Earth die off Kevin Loria 2018-04-19T19:38:00Z the Corals are beautiful, so no problem with a few degrees warmer. Dr Wachenfeld says climate change is really the biggest threat to the reefs. In the last 2 years the Great Barrier Reef has lost over half its coral. It was beautiful and vibrant then. So the Environment Minister goes to see for herself. It is tough for scientists to maintain the fiction that Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is broken, when the government minister responsible for the reef goes and has a look for herself. Humans removed the apex predator, Great Triton Conch, for its pretty shells and COT got out of control, unsurprisingly. Tourism and Events Queensland brought a marine biologist, a tourism advocate and a scientist together to explain what’s happening on the Great Barrier Reef. A second mass bleaching in … Well apparently those “scientists” aren’t very good at their job, so yeah. Well a strong arctic cold front/upper trof is about to take over AK’s weather for the next 10days. “The world’s first solar road has turned out to be a colossal failure that’s falling apart and doesn’t generate enough energy, according to a report”, https://www.businessinsider.com/worlds-first-solar-road-turned-out-colossal-failure-2019-8?fbclid=IwAR0SQanXaWiQSljj5iWL-bqxeVwDWgYX3s6xOd7fIQO0innta_je12oPzwo. Always, but always, it was and is about the narrative. “I went underwater for the first time in 1969, and the reef changed my life. It is thought that the Great Barrier Reef has been suffering as a result of escalating climate change. 1: “she has nothing to compare it to”. Didn’t Dr. Ridd get some kind of award from his climateering colleagues for criticizing their devious work? Go and see if the Great Barrier Reef is dying for yourself. The Great Barrier Reef, which stretches for 1,400 miles along Australia's coast, suffered an unprecedented coral bleaching event in the summer of 2016, … snikdad, don’t be smart about the COT damage. Accompanying Ms Ley on the visit this week has been Great Barrier Reef Foundation managing director Anna Marsden…”. Wouldn’t it be a better plan for you, John to ignore those renegade scientists who have been studying the reef for decades and don’t see an imminent catastrophe? the sceptical members of society including scientists are given the right to be sceptical. Great Barrier Reef suffers 89% collapse in new coral after bleaching events This article is more than 1 year old Study shows dramatic fall in baby coral numbers but also change in type of coral The Battle for the Truth about Global Warming, “…invaluable” – Steven F. Hayward, The Weekly Standard, “…changed the world and is one of the most influential resources on global warming. Disclaimer: Decoding the Reef: A Conversation with the Scientists, the Guide and the Advocate was a session at the Australian Society of Travel Writers 2019 Convention held in Cairns, Queensland, Australia on October 20, 2019. If you think a degree of warming is a threat to their existence you need to explain how and why they survived far greater changes in the past.

Can you explain how sea levels magically rise in one place and not others? Scientists- “Let’s carefully collect data in multiple locations over a time period, donut multiple times and confer with other scientists who have done it to make sure we accurately measure the overall flourishing or degradation of the Great Barrier Reef.”. Bleaching events will continue to occur and impact sections of the reef but the entire reef stretches 2,300km and will always recover from such events. Except Nature overwhelms mankind causing NOAA to use modeled numbers rather than the satellite’s. The bleaching event on the Great Barrier Reef in 2020 is not only the most widespread, but also second most severe on record, scientists found. Well, before we start handing out compliments let’s see them do something about taxpayer funding of alarmists and let’s see them hold people to account. ... Great Barrier Reef coral due to spawn ABC NEWS. No scientist on the face of this planet…has ever been funded….to study nothing is happening here, …and saying it’s dying is the easiest way to be funded to study almost anything, There’s reason all these studies are inconclusive, I was going to say this in a reply to an earlier ‘wokey’ above. Yes, we could take you to places and show you reefs that are very degraded, and they don’t look particularly great anymore. Speaking of Feynman, I recall when Freeman Dyson came out against AGW. It’s been spawning quite well about five nights after the full moon once the water temperature hits 26 degrees and Barry White is playing in the background.”. What a steaming pile of horseshit. It's the largest living structure on earth. Tropical sea surface temperatures have risen by 0.4–0.5 °C since the late 19th century, with rapid, human-induced climate change the greatest overall threat to the long-term future of the Great Barrier Reef.

Coral reefs, such as the Great Barrier Reef, are dying across the world. During those dives I’ve seen both healthy reefs and reefs heavily affected by bleaching following the last major El Nino event. The researchers placed loudspeakers along dying sections of the Great Barrier reef and played the sounds of a healthy coral reef. In November the annual coral spawning event takes place. Today Sus(+s)an Ley announced the reef was in much worse condition. Can we help with larval sediment? etc. All these events are entirely natural and are part of life on the reef. The live coral lives on the surface of this pile of dead ancestors. I actually caught a climate scientist saying on a website that the theory was so obviously correct that any contrary data could be ignored.Comment was later deleted. Could I refer you to the work of Dr. Peter Ridd? She seen’t it! You just can’t get a reliable canary these days. The deparure from even a pretense of science and into hysteria and threats is hard to read as other than a swan song or the final phrenetic acrobatics of a chicken with its head cut off. Search for the article title in google (not any other search engine). It’s the ultimate virtue signaling ploy to to guliable voters. Discover the social, economic and icon value. Although this rule is true, if this is Rule #1 in science then there are many Rule #1s. No amount of infantile bad language will conceal the fact that the whole global warming CO2 scare is built on laughably flawed pseudoscience that is utterly refuted by geology and palaeo climate data. I’m not sure many of the Reps will want to step out of their meeting rooms. Right – ignore scientists that have been studying it for decades and go and have a look over the side of a boat in a few places and make your decision based on that. “This gladdens my heart. And this is how we’re getting new coral colonies forming each year. Oh for Pete’s sake! http://www.exeter.ac.uk/news/featurednews/title_222710_en.html It has taken marine biologists decades of painstaking research, observation and recording to CONCLUDE that global warming is leading to acidification of our oceans which in turn is causing coral bleaching. Over the past few decades, the reef has slowly been dying. If you are so stupid to think vast majority of scientists who devote their life’s work to finding the truth are not to be trusted but the executives of major oil companies and the corrupted scientists they employ don’t just care about the next dollar then you are a fool and I hope you live long enough to feel the shame you deserve. Well john, Feynman made it clear, ” if the theory does not agree with the observations then the theory is wrong”. There is unprecedented dying of Great Barrier Reef in the past years, with 50% mortality of the reef due to coral bleaching. e.g. However, I believe the scientists such as Peter Ridd because when I look for evidence of the damage I see none.

Right. Great Barrier Reef Still not Dying Whatever Washington Post Says. They use precise transect locations from one year to another and video along it with a set FOV then classify species and percent cover in the lab after field season (summer) is over. I suspect bleaching impacts further South were even less. No scientific credentials needed. “I completely agree with Dave,” says Wendy Morris, Chair of Tropical Tourism North Queensland. “Leon August 17, 2019 at 5:11 pm Plenty of people from Miami mention the loss of 20 metres of beach lost to rising sea levels in the last 30 years. We have effectively sped up the processes of this coming mass extinction by no telling how many hundreds of thousands of years by worshipping coal, petrol, diesel, plastics, money, and the list goes on. If they offer grant money to researchers to find evidence that the GBR is doing fine, then odds are that that is exactly what they will find. Actually, despite pollution and other human activity, there is evidence that corals in the Gulf of Akaba But the “Barrier Reef is dying” scare – and believe me, it won’t be the last we hear of it – was never about the facts.

You mean the morons went forward with that stupid idea. Surprise. We have been told it has been closed to prevent London being flooded many, many times and yet not one picture, among thousands, shows this. Using beach erosion to judge sea level rise is a poor method. They use some version of a false strawman; HAHAHAHAHA! Maybe the Ridd case has had an effect in Aussie after all. I am a climate change sceptic and I firmly do not believe that climate change is going to kill the Great Barrier Reef (or for that matter any of the other doomsday scenarios the alarmists put out). / Over what time period? It’s transformative travel. Yea…. Just a follow up.
