According to geoengineeringwatch.org “Nearly Half Of The Great Barrier Reef To Die In The Next Month”, Abrupt Climate Shift Is Now Dane Wigington is citing an article by The New Daily: Great Barrier Reef bleaching worse than first thought http://thenewdaily.com.au/news/2016...t-barrier-reef-bleaching-worse-first-thought/ The article clarifies what the affected area is (my emphasis): It is an area from Cairns nortward to the Torres Strait The New Daily quotes Professor Terry Hughes, a coral reef expert from James Cook University who led the survey of the reef: I looked a little further into the claim about “half” the coral dying and this is what I found: Australia's National Coral Bleaching Task Force does not make any reference to the figure in a recent news release. March 1, 2016: http://www.aims.gov.au/docs/media/l...g-taskforce-keeping-a-close-watch-on-the-reef The James Cook University press release does not refer to half of northern coral dying either. March 29, 2016: https://www.jcu.edu.au/news/release...rce-documents-most-severe-bleaching-on-record The Sydney Morning Herald reported: http://www.smh.com.au/environment/g...of-worst-bleaching-event-20160328-gnsqrc.html So, it might be that the claim of “half” of the Great Barrier Reef coral dying was taken out of context. Regardless, half of the entire reef is not going to die in a month, as Wigington claimed. More importantly, there are obviously no links between bleached coral and geoengineering. The main culprit seems to be warming waters in that part of the world. Wigington’s claims regarding “ongoing climate engineering insanity” is distracting attention from some real problems. I think Mick may have mentioned that in another thread.
