The International Union for Conservation of Nature is blaming global warming for the “rising temperature of the oceans” and the supposed loss of close to 20% of the world’s coral reef.  The organization warns the rest will be destroyed if global warming is allowed to continue unchecked.  Hmmmm, one problem with the story they are telling, ocean temperatures are actually slightly cooling

This is one of the major problems with global warming hysteria, every ecological mystery is, by default, blamed on climate change.  If something is, in fact, destroying the Earth’s coral reefs, perhaps scientists should look for the real cause instead of falling back on this questionable theory.  I am skeptical of the group’s estimations however, because they don’t have the basic facts about ocean temperatures right to begin with.
