Steve says of me " I  suppose  you  will  never understand/learn why 
coral scientists and
   environmentalists are so worried about the impacts of anthropogenic
  climate change." Unfortunately I do!  I served on a climate change 
committee for 3 years.  That is what worries me.  For the record, I 
keep touting geology for the study of coral reefs (possibly because 
it was geologists that began the study of coral reefs...at least in 
Florida) but for the record  my undergraduate degree was zoology with 
minor in botany. I am a self taught geologist (with a lot of help 
from my friends and mentors as described in my memoir Bootstrap 
Geologist.) Gene
