THIS is a must read if you’re interested in natural climate change and its localized effect on coral reefs, versus the alarmist global climate propaganda spewed by the dishonest and alarmist climate change cabal.

Jim Steele nails it in this fabulous post here…

Uncritically blaming global warming, is bad science. Organisms are only affected by local conditions, not a chimeric global average. Believing global warming accounts for everything, Hughes failed to see the critical natural factors that locally drove the Great Barrier Reef 2016 bleaching event.

Although researchers agree coral undergo thermal stress when temperatures exceed 1 to 2°C of their local summer maximum, there has been no trend in maximum summer temperature in the northern Great…
