     Dear Coral List,
      I had the pleasure of working with Charlie Veron and other 
colleagues at an Ocean Acidification Workshop hosted by TNC in August 
2008.  I heard Charlie present some of what is contained in the 
presentation that is linked below.  Whether you have a strong opinion or 
not about what is driving climate change, or even if it is occurring at 
all, I encourage you to invest the time in watching Charlie's 
presentation.  The graphics and data are impressive.  Cheers, Billy

ps .. I will not have the time for debates ...but will read some 
postings, by some people.
