Landmark study concludes marine life can be rebuilt by 2050


Open access.

"  A key element identified for success is the mitigation of climate change
by reducing global greenhouse gas emissions. Impacts from realized and
unavoidable climate change already limit the scope for rebuilding tropical
corals to a partial—rather than substantial—recovery. The goal of
rebuilding the abundance of marine life can only succeed if the most
ambitious goals within the Paris Agreement are reached."

and must be addressed by the global community if reefs as we know them will
have any chance to persist."  Williams et al, 2019, Frontiers in Marine
