    Not quite, that paper analyzed temperature data to try and find what could be the reason for temperatures that, according to past data, would be sufficient to induce bleaching. Nutrient levels weren't specifically called out or verified as a cause for the disconnect, but were discussed along with the Eastern Australian Current as possible influences based on other sources.

    I was being facetious, kinda... There's too many people. If the climate changes and kills billions of people, that will reduce the amount of emissions being produced. So, self correcting.

    Like I said, this globalist, capitalist dream world is unsustainable. We have an overabundance of food, hell we throw away half the food we produce and so if we just keep on spreading McDonalds and every other product to every corner of the Earth, we will eventually overrun the planet.

    Yes, but they claim low nutrient levels could have played a role. That doesn't make sense.

    And there are also those that believe sea level rise and acidification will not be a problem at all because all that extra acidified water will just fall off the edge of our flat earth.

    So anyway, I just want to get clear on something. Is the good news that with global warming the coral reefs will be moving up to the Florida and California coasts, so we can dive them easily instead of flying Frontier and doing a bag drag?

    Not sure what's what. Piranha are now being caught by fishermen in Western Canadian inland waters.

    Looks like you completely misunderstood what their conclusion was.

    Easy solution. Ignore reporting. Go to primary sources, or at least use them for a sanity check.

    Which primary sources? And how does one check those for bias?
