The latest surveys spell more bad news for the Great Barrier Reef. Following a record high water surface temperature and mass bleaching event in 2016, the Australian icon may be on track for a similar event this year. Aerial and underwater footage from 2016 and 2017, shown in this video, shows the extent of the bleaching and die-off, which has already impacted large portions of the reef.

The government wants some shitty mines instead Great Barrier Reef did you know that the Great Barrier Reef makes more money than shitty mines and is more important. Coral reef experts and climate scientists agree that due to rising temperatures, Australia’s Great Barrier Reef is pretty much fucked. Well done us great guess i will never see it ever ;/

This makes me very upset, I've always wanted to go scuba diving in the Great Barrier Reef but it's too late now I guess. Wish we can help.

But the Donald's priority is to make oil companies richer, because the real tragedy would be if these oil managers didn't get an extra couple of millions for destroying our world. These poor managers! Everybody knows you can't live a decent life with less than 10 million dollars a year!

For those who dont believe in global warming, heres a fact. Mid febuarys for me allways used to involve heavy jackets and snow every month or so. Its snowed like 3 times this winter, 2 of which melted later in the day. I wear hoodies now because its nowhere near as cold as it used to be. Once or twice years ago it went inti the negative degrees. But until now, a few weeks ago it was almost in the 70 degree range, to where I could wear shorts and a t shirt, when I SHOULD have been wearing a heavy jacket and boots.

"We The people" have let this happen, by allowing corporations to fund interest groups which In turn fund campaigns for politicians. It's time for the people to run the government again and protect our planet earth, the home we've ever known

Glaciers are melting, reefs are bleaching, species are disappearing at an unprecedented rate. The Earth is dying but it's not our fault.... and I'm having dreams of large meteors and epic floods.
