#1 While coral reefs around the world are getting sicker as a result of global warming,
What a load of crap. Coral reefs have been around for millions of years and are very, very slow growth, which is then used to sell the rubes that this is proof of 'global warming', 'global cooling' or whatever's on sale this week.

#2 As a long time diver, I have seen it. High temps damage shallow reefs and then they recover, sometimes in 10 years or so. Deep reefs are protected by upwelling of cold water. It's a natural process which has been going on far longer than we have been aware of it. 70 years ago hardly anyone went scuba diving.
