Great Barrier Reef will die without climate action
MetadataShow full item record
Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef will die unless radical climate action is taken, including phasing out coal-fueled power, the Sydney Morning Herald reported, citing a report by a government agency. The reef will collapse if the planet warms by another half a degree, according to a private report prepared by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority –- the government’s lead agency for managing the reef -- and obtained by the SMH under freedom of information laws, the paper said. Australia is blessed with natural wonders such as the Great Barrier Reef, but its economy remains reliant on mining and fossil fuels. Political inaction has made climate change a key election issue as Australians prepare to head to the polls on May 18.
