I am a writer, not a scientist. The poster has every reason to question the story but to attack the poster?
Sorry, Mrs. Mayet, but I'm not going to let you attempt to malign me as if I were attacking you. I was quite clear when I said
Is that REALLY your argument?
My problem is not with you, but with YOUR
argument. And, while you can hide behind your original sources all you want...

I put it down largely to the rape of the sea by humans and pro fishers but when added with the declining reef and weird water currents it does point

I find personally that global warming explains the increase of water temperature wquite well.
While you could certainly try

reefs (unless you think we've been aiding global warming for thousands of years now, and I'm not about to get into that argument with you).
