Peter I agree, As you know. and pretty much say in your post, If we stop 
CO2 emissions tomorrow it will stay in the atmosphere (but likely at 
slightly reduced levels) to the end of the century. If Co2 really is 
killing corals then they will be gone anyway. Like it or not we are 
pretty much stuck with fossil fuels for the next several decades 
regardless any decisions made in Copenhagen. Best thing we can do is 
continue to manage what we have now. Gene
