On Thursday some of the nation’s leading coral scientists stressed that the situation facing coral reefs is nothing short of desperate. They said a drastic cut in global carbon dioxide emissions won’t be enough to protect corals from deadly bleaching events and other environmental threats.
In hopes of giving the reefs a fighting chance, a newly formed committee of the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering and Medicine will review a variety of potential intervention strategies. They will range from genetic modification of coral species to spraying salt water into the atmosphere to shade and cool reefs.
