    Me thinks that some “experts” are mainly experts in selling fear
    to make a living(a scientific version of insurance companies)
    and it is always interessting to see what an apocalyptical multi tool co2 has become.
    The main element of life has become the ultimate destroyer(corals,snow,water level,draughts.
    Some strange thing must have happened to co2 in the 80ies that turned it into pure evil.

    Done in by the old morphological stasis trick.

    At least he had the guts to own up to his bogus prediction.

    The corals were wearing “stasis masks” which allowed them to survive, just like corona virus masks keep us kinda safe.

    He has a prominent sur-name. His great-grand..something was primeminister under our mentally challenged king Christian 7. – Primeminister Hoegh-Guldberg was not fond of Struensees (a reformer who really stirred things up in 18th century Denmark!) Free Spech-policy and he was very much into restoring the powerfull monarcy. And his mismanagement of the economy and corruption is well known. Perhaps it runs in the family ;-)

    “A severe weakening of his rule was linked to his financial mismanagement and growing corruption. He showed no understanding of the plight of the peasants, and he abolished most of the reforms of Struensee. Though a provincial himself, Guldberg totally favoured the capital at the expense of the provinces. The deaths and removals of some of his government colleagues including Heinrich Carl von Schimmelmann (1724–1782) and Andreas Peter Bernstorff (1735–1797) enlarged his field of activity, but also made him more vulnerable to critics.[3] [4] [5] “

    Ove Hoegh-Guldberg has done very well out of “the Reef is dying” stories for many years. It has kept him (and his crew) in funds from the State & Federal governments for over 30 years. Actually I thought he would have retired years ago.

    The Great Barrier Reef ‘first died’ in 1971; headlines in the Sydney Morning Herald – Australia’s oldest newspaper – about its demise by the end of the year.** Similar claims have appeared regularly for decades, usually around the time Government Research grants are decided. It is very annoying for tourist operators who are losing business because overseas visitors think that it is dead. Those who go to “see it before it is all gone” are surprised (and delighted) to find it in good condition.

    Yes, there are small areas that ‘bleach’ usually by a fall in sea level or predation by starfish, but they recover. I was on a school trip in 1962 there when it was mentioned by the boat crew who expected that bit to recover in a year or two.

    **It was the Sydney Morning Herald that ‘died’. Went bankrupt, was sold off but was kept going as a newspaper (for publicity purposes?) by a TV network.
