Increasingly bleak future for the Great Barrier Reef?

One thought on “Increasingly bleak future for the Great Barrier Reef?”

  1. Interesting report Ove, particularly Figure 5.2 “Projected vulnerabilities of components of the Great Barrier Reef ecosystem to climate change” on page 10 at http://www.gbrmpa.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0005/40739/Outlook_InBrief_WEB.pdf

    It seems to indicate that allowing CO2 to rise above 400 ppm CO2 would lead to the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef.

    Do you know if GBRMPA is saying this clearly to its Minister, Peter Garrett?

    Is the take away message that Australia’s target should be to stabilise atmospheric CO2 beneath 400 ppm CO2 if we want to save the GBR?
