Anthony R. Picciolo/NOAA/NODC The news for coral reefs just got worse. Today, 75% of the world’s coral reefs are threatened, a new report says, an increase from 58% a decade ago. Local pressures, in particular overfishing, destructive fishing, and pollution from nearby land-based human activity, are paramount, but global warming has caused increased bleaching and ocean acidification, which makes it harder for corals to grow, compounding the problems, the World Resources Institute (WRI) and 24 other organizations concluded in “Reefs at Risk Revisited,” an update of a 1998 report. This news is worse than even a 2008 assessment, “Status of the Coral Reefs of the World: 2008,” which concluded that 46% of reefs were healthy and not under any predictable threat. “Threats have gone from worrisome to dire,” Jane Lubchenco, administrator for the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said at the briefing in Washington, D.C., about the report. With the help of satellite data, the new analysis looked at reefs on a much finer scale than did the effort in 1998, with a 64 times greater resolution. It evaluated how the 275 million people who live close to reefs will fare if these predictions come true. It concluded that, given the status quo, more than 90% of reefs will be at risk by 2030 and virtually all reefs will be threatened by 2050. Haiti, Indonesia, and the Philippines are among the most vulnerable countries because local communities depend so heavily on reefs for their food and livelihood.

About 27% of reefs are in parks and reserves, but only 6% of those are effective, it concluded. It also pointed out that when local threats from fishing, pollution, and so forth diminish, reefs can rebound. But, noted Nancy Knowlton of the Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., “If we do want to have reefs around by 2050, we are going to have to do something about carbon dioxide” to slow global warming and acidification. Added Lubchenco: “We have a chance to reverse the decline of coral reefs, but the window of opportunity is finite.”

3, in the domestic, high quality article is the hard truth, the ranking is relatively good
why Google update, love Shanghai followed by a big update, remember the last time when Google update is the case, why the two search engine update time coincidence?
personal feeling there are a few points:
1, remind the webmaster attention love Shanghai search engine
No. 6.27 around 10 pm, a thrilling moment, Google PR update, many PR are up, of course there are some station PR down, No. 6.28 in the morning we found love in Shanghai also had a big update, many stations included plummeted, but many stations included increased Jin made a large.

He added: “Every fan and pundit will have their own opinions on where Rangers are and we don’t need to get involved in that.“We have belief in ourselves and are trying to create a winning mentality.“But there has been a lot of change and it will take time for us to grow but I’m very happy with where we are right now.”Gerrard has overseen a squad overhaul at Ibrox as he looks to improve Rangers’ fortunes.His new-look defence’s run of clean sheets came to an end when Osijek scored late on Thursday, but the manager was pleased with his charges reaction to conceding.He continued: “All the signings have been positive, what pleased me most last night was the disappointment in the defender’s and goalkeeper’s faces when we conceded.“That tells me we are going in the right way, that’s a good trait to have.“All the best teams that I played in, all the defenders hated conceded goals and that’s a good sign.” On his aspirations for the season, he said: “It’s a difficult question to answer as it’s a long season but we made a lot of changes for a reason, we felt the squad needed that amount of surgery to help it compete. “We don’t want to set any targets or put any added pressure on the players, we’ve said just to focus on each game.“The idea is to have variety in every position so we can compete over the season ahead.“But we don’t want to get ahead of ourselves, the focus is on Aberdeen.” Rangers boss Steven Gerrard refused to set targets for the new Premiership season as the Light Blues attempt to halt Celtic’s run of league titles.The Ibrox side finished 12 points adrift of Brendan Rodgers’ double treble winners and three behind Aberdeen in the league last time out.Gerrard has since taken over as manager, with a new coaching staff and ten signings arriving in Govan alongside the former Liverpool skipper.Despite the overhaul, Gerrard was unwilling to make any predictions as the Light Blues’ rivals Celtic eye an eighth-straight league title.
