Goddamn warmal globing will cram the oceans with hideous coral:
New Australian research claims the world’s coral reefs could expand in size by as much as a third as oceans heat up.
The study has contradicted the standing view that increased ocean warming, a result of climate change, is killing coral reefs around the world.
The newly published research, by a team led by oceanographer from the University of NSW Dr Ben McNeil, suggests ocean warming will foster reef growth.
It’s about time we signed up to that Kabuki Treaty, or whatever it’s called. Coral is disgusting. In other happy environmental news, forestry company Gunns Limited is suing Bob Brown and other enviro-activists. Targeted conservationists say the writs are “an unprecedented attack on free speech and their right to protest”; Greens leader Bob Brown is predictably hysterical:
They can take every penny. They can take every peaceful night’s sleep. They can take every home comfort. They will never stop me campaigning against their vile destruction of Tasmania’s forests and its wildlife. Not ever. They misjudge we defenders of the forests.
He’s worried about losing “every home comfort”. Go live in a tree, Bob.
UPDATE. Martin Flanagan is deeply concerned: “If Tasmanians opposed to Gunns are silenced, all who challenge the rich and powerful in this country are vulnerable.” Good! And speaking of the crushing of dissent:
United Nations officials will not renew the contract of a New Zealand doctor who co-wrote a controversial memoir about life on the front lines of peacekeeping in the 1990s.
Andrew Thomson, who has worked for the UN for 12 years in New York, Cambodia, Haiti, Bosnia-Herzegovina and Rwanda, received a letter three weeks ago declining to renew his contract.
