Global Warming Responsible For Coral Shrinking Around Equator
A new study from a team of Australian and German researchers showed that when sea surface temperatures increased by about 0.7 degrees Celsius during the last interglacial warm period, the Earth’s equatorial regions saw a sharp decline in coral diversity.
Anyone with half a brain would understand that expanding tropics means expanding range for corals and other tropical species.
“Our results suggest that the poleward range expansions of reef corals occurring with intensified global warming today may soon be followed by equatorial range retractions,” the report states.
In other words global warming is good for corals, but these geniuses were desperate to spin it negatively.
Only problem is, the tropics are cooling. They forgot to check on the basis of their thesis before wasting taxpayer money and reporting mindless drivel.
