Thus far I have only been able to find occasional media stories with the odd quote from a researcher but very little of substance. I am trying to find if bleaching was observed at all and any estimates of impact (quantitative or qualitative). Any help that the list can provide is greatly appreciated.

It's interesting to note that several sources have characterized Exxon Mobil as "the most important funding source" for climate change denial.. Here is one source to consider (see p. 6 key actors). https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Riley_Dunlap/publication/284128276_Climate_change_denial Since you "experienced it all", do you have any direct knowledge of events or information that contradicts the position of the Union of Concerned Scientists that regardless of public statements to the contrary Exxon Mobil continues to support and promote misinformation regarding climate change?
