The Australian Institute of Marine Science (AIMS) is Australia’s tropical marine research agency. They admit the Great Barrier Reef is growing rapidly, but say climate change could reverse all the progress is a short amount of time.

“The GBR remains exposed to the predicted consequences of climate change, including more severe cyclones and more frequent and intense marine heatwaves. The observed recovery has been seen previously and can be reversed in a short amount of time.”

Tropical cyclones have been declining in Australia for fifty years, when experts also said the reef was doomed.

    For some people, the sky is always falling, and they always go into politics.

    Lol. Nothing but lies everywhere

    A healthy Great Barrier Reef would be very bad news for some of these so-called scientists who enjoy an enviable tropical lifestyle purporting to study it. No problems would mean no need for research and as a result no money or job to carry it out. But by endlessly talking up threats and throwing in a liberal dose of climate catastrophism to boot they can keep those government research grants flowing, the publish or perish papers appearing in scientific journals and their careers on the up and up. And what’s more with a little bit of luck the university they work for will sack those non collegiate party poopers who spoil the fun by calling out their questionable science.

    “Madge, we need to cancel our plans to visit Australia. The Great Barrier Reef is gone.”

  5. If the climate warms the Great Barrier Reef may be able to stretch as far south as Brisbane or even Sydney, greatly increasing Tourist possibilities.

    The Great Barrier Reef is thriving. It’s such a great destination for a holiday, diving and swimming. It’s Paradise, and we’ve been going back there for 30 years now and it just gets better.
    Forget the conflated nonsense about its so-called demise.

    While we here in Perth, Western Australia, are experiencing a rather cold October with many days under 20C….

    So, how does Mayor Doomberg explain:

    1) Food adequacy throughout the developing world has trended positively during the global warming phase that began in the 1970s or 1980s. Developing world residents eat better today than 40+ yrs ago even though world population doubled.

    2) The Age of Enlightenment coincided with rising temperatures in the Northern Hemisphere.

    3) The rise of ALL the great civilizations in N. Africa and the Middle East coincide with warming trends.

    He can’t. So, he avoids these inconvenient truths.
