Stimulus Funds Help To Revive Florida's Coral Reefs
from today's Morning Edition:

Researchers in Florida are growing new coral and transplanting it onto  
damaged reefs. They're using techniques developed, not by a marine  
scientist, but by the owner of a tropical fish company. With $3  
million in stimulus money from the federal government, the project is  
being expanded.

"Now is the time to confront [the climate change] challenge once and  
for all. Delay is no longer an option.
Denial is no longer an acceptable response. The stakes are too high.  
The consequences, too serious."
Barack Obama, Nov. 18 2008
