Just got back from a short family holiday at Bargara beach – about an hours drive North from us and the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef.
I haven’t actually seen the Great Barrier Reef but intend to one day soon before it disappears.
There is 100 percent agreement among climate scientists that human activity is contributing to global warming.
Climate scientists may disagree about specific effects (eg., will cyclones increase in number, will sea levels rise and by how much) but on that basic and fundamental principal they all agree – despite what you may have read on the internet and heard from shock jocks on the radio.
Global warming will have a catastrophic effect on the reef. An increase of a couple of degrees in temperature may not sound like a lot but it will effectively destroy this natural wonder of the world. It will result in severe mass coral bleaching and threaten the habitat of key reef species.
We all need to take action on climate change before it is too late. There is not much time left.
Enjoy your Easter everyone and may peace be with you
