    In 100 years time we will be slaves to our new Coral overlords.

        If coal mining and fertilizer, round up , even in the soil , and big companies like Clive Palmer can pay to dump toxins in the reef , I feel all this experiments are just a waste of time and money. Sugar crops put the round up into the soil and not spraying, but these toxins still run onto reef from rain run offs. We need to stop the damage from the root cause. Otherwise we will never be able to regrow the Reef. Crown of thorns thrive on round up. Also stopping geo-engineering is another way of saving the reef , due to geo-engineering uses chemtrails loaded with , barium , strontium, alum and lithium. We need to stop poisoning the land and reef , then maybe,we can see the reef grow back naturally

          A waste of blood money (taxes) for false science.

          The reef is fine, corals live in hotter water than we have, your science is corrupted.

          Not a man made problem.

            @Doc Man the same amount as you I would expect, nothing. Am I wrong? If so, how am I wrong

                      Great stuff. Also can we please push for all International waters to be recognized as Maritime Reserves. Force every fishing nation to be responsible, rather than poach off the efforts of nations like Australia that are seeking solutions.
