     A paper that is a bit older reports a reef area in American Samoa
where substrate (loose rubble) has kept corals from re-establishing for
quite a long time.

New online open-access field guide to 300 coral species in Chagos, Indian

By getting serious about limiting global warming, the world could save
itself more than $20 trillion.  (action would cost only a half trillion
over 30 years, a third the cost of the Iraq war, benefits would be 40 times
costs, that's a huge return on investment)

The cost of a warming climate

Climate costs  http://www.readcube.com/articles/10.1038/d41586-018-05219-5

Large potential reduction in economic damages under UN mitigation targets
(and 30% loss of world economy if the climate is allowed to warm by 4oC)
