Climate Change? 'Dead' Coral Reef Comes Alive During 'Hottest Year on Record'
If you've been plugged into the news, you're likely familiar with this subject. Allow me to give context for those who don't find themselves keeping tabs on coral. Climate changers have been studying the deaths of coral reefs. Though, apparently, not closely enough to know how or why this happened. A coral reef that was long thought dead due to global warming/climate change has recently sprung back to life. Surprise!
Global climate change is wreaking havoc on corals worldwide. In 2003, researchers declared Coral Castles dead. [The] giant reef site had been devastated by unusually warm water. Then in 2015, a team of marine biologists was stunned and overjoyed to find Coral Castles once again teeming with life. But the rebound came with a big question: Could the enormous and presumably still fragile coral survive what would be the hottest year on record?
This month, [a] Massachusetts-based research team...splashed out of an inflatable dinghy to examine Coral Castles closely... They were greeted with a vista of bright greens and purples - unmistakable signs of life.
No one actually knows what drives reef resilience. But [scientists] are on a quest to find out why this coral and other reefs nearby came back to life.
Apparently this isn't the only reef to die and then un-die. But what, pray tell, caused the resurrection? You know, since this year is supposed to be the hottest year EVER and all. Hint: it's not global cooling.
It's a tad inconvenient for the climate change narrative. You know, the one that insists the planet is dying because there aren't enough Prius-driving, canvas bag tote-carrying, superior feeling, preaching turdnuggets. One can't help but wonder if these zombie corals came back to life because the Earth is totes fine. Logic lends itself to the argument that if conditions were worsening, nature wouldn't rise from the dead and continue on thriving. But that's just me. Using reason again. Don't you just hate that?
Of course corals coming back to life should be good news. Once dead, now alive. YEAH LIFE! But here's the funny thing, the leftists who claim to love the planet and hug the trees? They're not celebrating. Weird. I guess some leftists would rather love the idea they have the power to wreck the planet than admit it isn't being wrecked. Think about that for a second.
You know how leftists want to silence everyone who disagrees with the theory of man-made climate change? (see TYRANNY: California Now Want to Outlaw 'Climate Change Dissent') It seems as though it's far from "settled" science. Let this coral reef serve as a friendly reminder.
But hey, what do I know? I'm just a climate change denier.
