I need to make something clear about my original message in "coral reefs
doomed?": I was NOT intimating that R. Ormond's statements were made as a
"ploy" (ref: colleague M. Risk's post) to gain funding.  I can see how one
might draw that inference from what I said, but that was definitely not my

My overall intent in the message was that a more well-rounded statement on
coral reef decline might be more helpful in public statements to the
press.  However, I am beginning to see that a consensus might be
impossible, even if a desirable goal.
