I would like to correct something I wrote about mushroom corals introduced to 
Jamaica.  The mushroom corals were not deliberately introduced to the reef.  
They were in a tank in the lab, and someone moved the outflow from the tank so 
it went into the ocean, and larvae must have flowed out onto the reef and 
settled.      Doug

Figures on Global Climate Show 2010 Tied 2005 as the Hottest Year on Record

"New government figures for the global climate show that 2010 was the wettest 
year in the historical record, and it tied 2005 as the hottest year since 
record-keeping began in 1880.  It was the 34th year running that global 
temperatures have been above the 20th-century average; the last below-average 
year was 1976. The new figures show that 9 of the 10 warmest years on record 
have occurred since the beginning of 2001."
