Professor Peter Ridd -
The world's coral reefs are not declining
Here is a reviews on the latest data on the state of the world’s coral reefs, which is extremely encouraging, especially for the Great Barrier Reef, the largest single reef system, with record high coral cover in 2022.
A brief explanation of “bleaching” is given, a brilliant adaptation for corals to cope with warming or cooling temperatures.
Finally, a brief comment is made on the subject of academic freedom and the general problem of freedom of speech and thought in universities and on the associated collapse of intellectual rigour and he raises questions on our failing universities and science institutions.
