As Coral Bleaching Goes Global, Scientists Fear Worst Is Yet to Come

The longest and most widespread coral bleaching event on record has reached reefs near at least 38 countries and island groups, according to the latest report from NOAA's Coral Reef Watch and other research. Parts of many coral reefs have died, becoming ghostly underwater graveyards. They are perhaps the starkest reminders—like the melting Arctic—that a thickening blanket of greenhouse gases is irrevocably changing the face of the Earth.
