The Guardian's Graham Readfearn is reporting on global warming impact on coral reefs. 

Global heating is driving the world's coral reefs towards what may become the most extensive mass bleaching event ever recorded, with the current episode being the fourth global event of its kind. According to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coral Reef Watch, 54% of the ocean waters containing coral reefs have already undergone heat stress severe enough to cause bleaching. The rate of reef areas experiencing such stress is increasing by approximately 1% each week. Notably, the Great Barrier Reef has suffered its most widespread heat stress event this year. Mass bleaching events are becoming more frequent and severe, with significant implications for biodiversity, coastal protection, and local economies reliant on tourism and fisheries, highlighting the vulnerability of coral reefs to climate change.
