Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing more I’d like than for that article to be right.

I have read that article and I actually understand what it’s saying and that’s why I feel it’s very manipulative for people who don’t understand the subject!

The fact you ask "which reef" demonstrates a total lack of knowledge about the GBR.

But I've been to a few inner and outer ones over the years.

With all due respect, judging from your posts you don’t seem to really have an understanding of corals and don’t realy seem interested apart from pushing an agenda!

I’m off to suck on a car exhaust, I read a FB post by an investment banker with shares in GSK it’s good for Morality

With all due respect

Re: The Great Barrier Reef- resistant coral

Interesting about heat in 2050.

Here's an article regarding a mini ice age 2030.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/amp.ifl...-ice-age-2030/

Basically.. The sun output nulls soon. Natural long term frequency. Eg sleeps. Last occurance was late 1600s? 1700s?
Earth cools. River Thames; London froze over last sleeping sun event.

Sparks my interest because nowadays we have polluting technological systems and a much larger population to use such. Earth with take a massive hit because of our short term survival wants being greater than our long-term survival needs. Eg. Man. People.

Thanks for the heads up on fresh water showers.

I saw a lecture she did last year where she discussed the extreme cold weather that parts of North America experienced this winter so it's a bit hard to dismiss her work.

I'll see if I can find the link.

That was easy... https://youtu.be/M_yqIj38UmY

Damn, what a phony. Has to work a regular job because he wouldn't toe the line at JCU and got kicked to the kerb.

It'll be interesting to see what happens in a couple of weeks time.

Re: The Great Barrier Reef- resistant coral

Peter Ridd’s court case against James Cook University is scheduled for March 26-28Th (2019) in Brisbane.

https://independentaustralia.net/env...e-denial,11352

https://www.sciencedirect.com/scienc...25326X18301425

Ridd has long been associated with groups that have misrepresented the state of climate science, he has been speaking openly for more than a decade about his views which, is that the Great Barrier Reef is doing just fine, and is not threatened by global warming or industrial activity.
He has been fired for alleged multiple breaches of his university’s code of conduct*. Some of his earlier breaches that led to James Cook University’s disciplinary action did relate to comments about his colleagues, but that’s not quite it. JCU started disciplinary action because the way Ridd chose to go about that “criticism” breached aspects of the university’s code of conduct. We know this because Ridd posted all the “strictly private and confidential” letters from his university onto his public website.
Of course Ridd criticised published work, but that’s not what got him fired. Ridd did recently pull together his criticisms of published work in a “viewpoint” article in a journal. But the scientists at AIMS who responded, pointed out that Ridd was simply repeating criticisms that had already been discussed in the academic literature. They questioned why Ridd had ignored those published critiques of his own work, and instead just repeated the claims. If you want to see the “charge sheet” where JCU lists in its termination letter the reasons why they fired him , then look below. You won’t find anything about “criticising published work” in the full termination letter.
The echo chamber of conservative media, websites, and think tanks, that push climate science denial, swung into action, urging readers to visit Ridd’s crowdfunding page. Rather than focus on the alleged breaches of the code of conduct, Ridd and his supporters are attempting to reframe the case around academic freedom, free speech, and scientific integrity.
I doubt that his court case will address these larger philosophical questions, but will adjudicate the narrow legal questions:
Is the Code of Ethics legal & binding?
Did he breach them?
If so, so egregiously as to justify:
- Censure?
- Termination?

Charge Sheet ➥ James Cook’s termination letter to Peter Ridd – Graham Readfearn

*Code of Conduct ➥ https://www.jcu.edu.au/policy/corpor...ersity-council

Re: The Great Barrier Reef- resistant coral

I suspect his 35 years at JCU (a university that specialises in marine studies with campuses in coastal regions adjacent to the GBR) is the clue. The guy apparently knows what he's talking about when it comes to the GBR and probably blew his stack when the bean counters and a bunch of johnny-come-latelys (usually speaking in foreign accents) hopped on the CC gravy train and pervaded the system.

You might care to observe that ReefMagnet is Mackay based. Take a look at how many GBR coral fringed islands, shoals and reefs are within a few hours sail for him
