Dear Flo,

Ther is a very high contradiction : tourists come in reefs to enjoy them,
and travel by airplane, which do round mean Earth 6% of Global Warming
(10-15% for Europe) which kill them with mass bleaching. So take a tax on
their jet fuel comsumption at 23€/tCO2 (actual CO2 EU market, a minimum,
hopefully and surely rising - 1 litre kerosen is 2.89 kg CO2 - dissolving
12 kg coral would the pH be kept constant, Earth regulation since >3.5Gyr)
multiplied by 3.20 (best estimate of EU TRADEOFF program) for ozone,
-methane, H2O, aerosols (soot, sulfate), contrails and induced cirrus.

No better thing than truth.
