Debunked: Geoengineering Killing Great Barrier Reef

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.

The James Cook University press release does not refer to half of northern coral dying either.
March 29, 2016:

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.

I See this the same way. Rising water temperatures due clobal warming puts enough stress on the coralls to bleach out. But, Bleaching doesn't right away mean dying.

Also speaking against geo-engineering (like chemtrails to reflect more sunlight into space) is, coral-bleaching can also happen due too much sunlight, not enough water or heavy pollution.

That news release is from March 1st, so it's not up-to-date.

Fair point. I found another media release from 14 March 2016.

Here is a more recent press release from 29 March 2016

It seems to conform to the story published by the Sydney Morning Herald.
