Two years ago, the Global Coral Reef Monitoring
Network reported 10% of the world's coral reefs being
in serious trouble.
This number has now more than doubled. A report
published today found that 27 percent of the world's
coral reefs were gone and predicted that 70 percent
would be gone by 2050.

I knew it was bad, but I never expected it that bad.

The only "good" thing about it could be, that this
news will have some kind of a Chernobyl-effect and
will serve as a wake-up-call, thus, spread the bad
news, please,
