Global warming puts half of all reefs at risk

Half of the world’s coral reefs may die within the next 40 years unless urgent measures are taken to protect them from climate change, the World Conservation Union warns in a new report released today. Warming ocean temperatures are causing reefs to bleach and die, but Marine Protected Areas can.

Meanwhile, the arctic ice is melting at an alarming rate, and even those who used to pretend global warming wasn’t happeneing are now forced to. Question is, when will the US government take it seriously?
