The Great Barrier Reef
A third of a 1,400-mile reef supporting billions of sea creatures, gone forever. Yet folks in Australia won’t ramp up renewable energy. Florida’s reefs are also at risk. The Paris climate agreement was only a start. Global warming and sea temperatures will still increase to where we might lose most of our precious marine life and the oxygen that is produced there. The simplest, most powerful course, scientists and economists agree, is a national (or worldwide) price on carbon. Consumers are protected by rebates and job growth follows.
