An estimated 95% of the Caribbean's coral reefs are dead or dying.

Is there a link to this information?
That's a crazy high number and we should be way more worried than we are if that's the case.

I don't know Susan. I don't know. Environment is when I become a flaming bleeding heart liberal.

As a SCIBA diver, I've been able to dive all around the world. First question to the dive master after the first dive, "has it always been like this?" Every single time "no, it's all dying. I don't know what's happening."
Japan, Guam, Hawaii, California, Florida, England, Turkey, Etc...it's the same

I was not aware, and Im one that usually pays attention to this stuff (Save the Bay). So think about how many people actually don't know something this destructive.

That's what most places are trying. Breeding them in aquariums and then trying to make them take on dying reefs or starting new reefs. From what I've read, it's about a 50/50 success rate.
