Could a warming of the ocean lead to the destruction of our world’s coral reefs? Well such is the assertion of global warming advocates, but according to the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide, such contentions regarding coral are pitted with many small holes. Among them is a recent study in India, where researchers examined coral reefs experiencing a significant warming trend. While they observed a nearly 50 percent bleaching of the reefs initially, within a couple years the corals began to quickly recover – and today the successive incarnations of coral reefs are even more resistant to warming induced bleaching. Little wonder the Indian scientists concluded, quote, “any disturbance is only temporary” and “the coral will resurge under the sea.”
