This recent NY Times article caught my attention, especially this 
provocative statement:

"Some conservationists advocate triage, accepting that some
ecosystems, like coral reefs, may not survive in a warmer world, and
putting their efforts elsewhere."

I wonder if such statements could be damaging for our endeavors.
