Dear Jim, Thank you for having the fortitude to point it out the problem
with the word "pollution." As you know one persons food (or funding) is
another's poison. We should as you say, "identify what the anthropogenic
factors are that influence reefs" In the rush to save reefs it appears we
have skipped over the basic research needed to quantify these factors and/or
ignored those results that do not support legal and sociopolitical leanings.
Pollution means many thing$ to many people. Thanks for broaching the
subject. Gene
