    Chasing Coral "worth watching"

    Yeah we watched it last night. Its sad to know the rate corals are dying. They did a great job on the flick though. I recommend everyone watch it.

    LOL I was just about to post the same thing! Just found it on Netflix. Makes you wonder if saltwater tanks may save some species to be later put back in our oceans when things cool down.

    We would have to keep corals alive for a long time for that to happen. Whats most depressing is the charts of where our climate is heading in the next 20 years. Even with the changes being made currently its probably not even 1/4th of what we need. We need like the reincarnate of Teddy Roosevelt but for the ocean to come along.

    Yea and I don't know how we could fix the temperatures much less the very important currents. If it where only temperatures maybe people could start corals further north but that doesn't help the currents which is so vital so don't see what we could even do there If would take some serious fans underwater and the pressures and stuff constantly building up on stuff trying to maintain. But if cold enough water was pumped along the currents it might help. But with the way things are I don't see it happening.

    Kinda like the bees no one seems to know about it or care. I sure don't want to have to take a q-tip or cut off a male flower and do everything by hand and I love the health benefits of honey

    Of course if our world had piroties straight there is no telling what we could accomplish. Unfortunately we all know that isn't the case.
