Just a few years ago, David Attenbor… excuse us… Sir David Attenborough — had a grave prediction about Australia’s Great Barrier Reef:

And why will the reef die? Because of climate change, of course.

That brings us to stories from CNBC and the Washington Post about Australia’s Great Barrier Reef being the biggest it’s been in decades. BUT, you guessed it, that doesn’t mean it won’t eventually be destroyed by climate change as so many have predicted:

It would obviously kill the media to frame their reports somewhere along the lines of “you know, maybe all these alarmist predictions have been total BS.”

Well look at this!

Two-thirds of the Great Barrier Reef in Australia recorded the highest amount of coral cover in nearly four decades, though the reef is still vulnerable to climate change and mass bleaching, a monitoring group said Thursday.

The northern and central parts of the UNESCO world heritage-listed reef have experienced some recovery while the southern region has seen a loss of coral cover due to crown-of-thorns starfish outbreaks, according to a report by the Australian Institute of Marine Science, a government agency.

But don’t you dare say this means the climate change alarmists have been wrong yet again:

The Great Barrier Reef has suffered from widespread and severe bleaching because of rising ocean temperatures. The reef was hit especially hard in 2016 and 2017 by underwater heat waves that prompted bleaching events. This year, it’s suffering a sixth mass bleaching due to heat stress caused by climate change.

They’ll never just come out and admit that the alarmists have been wrong because “journalism” or something.

There are examples of that almost daily.
