TJ, Its been almost a year now since you "sincerely" asked me to discuss the impacts of CO2 on coral reefs. I replied with 2 wonderful essays, The Coral Bleaching Debate:Is Bleaching the Legacy of a Marvelous Adaptation Mechanism or A Prelude to Extirpation?

http://landscapesandcycles.net/coral-bl ... ebate.html

and How Gaia and Coral Reefs Regulate Ocean pH http://landscapesandcycles.net/gaia-and ... an-ph.html

Despite your request for a sincere discussion, you never responded. I am beginning to feel you were never concerned about coral reefs, or any evidence that shows rising CO2 has never been a problem. However you still respond to posts suggesting catastrophic climate change. I now feel I was duped into thinking you were sincerely interested in objective analyses and discussion!!!

The "whistleblower" John Bates posted an essay on the issue on Judith Curry's webstie. I suggest people directly read what he said versus the spin of warmunistas or the Daily Mail
