Pollutant run-off is not how to stop coral bleaching

March 21, 2016

Greg Hunt, you have got to be kidding. It’s all very well to raise the bleaching alert to its highest level and fund constant monitoring. But much more is needed, and you are clearly either in denial or blatantly ignoring the science if you think that stopping pollutant run-off is going to stop coral bleaching while at the same time you give approval to enormous new coalmines. The majority of Australians urge you to free yourself and your government from the power of the fossil fuel industry and do something meaningful and effective to address the problem that Australia is fuelling by its refusal to act.
