  1. Like the idea of spending money to save the reefs, but not really much they can do unless they can buy a time machine and convince people to start reducing emissions starting thirty years ago or so. The ocean has sucked up a ton of heat and can’t let it go. In July 2023 the ocean temperature was a mind boggling 93 degrees. It was nice while it lasted, I guess.

  2. I have read an article that said the Florida’s Coral Reef was dying because the Water is warming, if that is true, what can be done to correct the problems?
