Great Barrier Reef on brink of third major coral bleaching in five years, scientists warn
If ocean temperatures don’t drop in the next two weeks, heat stress could tip reef over into another widespread event

The Great Barrier Reef could be heading for a third major coral bleaching outbreak in the space of five years if high ocean temperatures in the region do not drop in the next two weeks, scientists and conservationists have warned.

Heat stress is already building across the world’s biggest reef system, with reports of patchy bleaching already occurring. But a major widespread event is not currently taking place.

“We are down to the wire,” said Prof Terry Hughes, director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies at James Cook University.

The Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority is closely monitoring conditions. Areas of heat stress are spreading, particularly across the central and southern areas that are popular with tourists.

well, tbh, if they are going to cut plane travel because of all the carbon and greenhouse gases, maybe Oz had better look to its own resources rather than to importing big spenders to boost the economy.

I'm not familiar the 'punching a cone' expression. Is it slang for dope smoking or wanking?

I wish I had some chemical help to spend the time... not being able to go out is really chafing, and I'm full of bad thoughts.

The Dutch are panic-buying dope, and are behind other European countries in numbers of cases. Perhaps it's protective?
