A cubic kilometer of slab? That is going to be a small tsunami.

That should finnish of the protected reef for good then .
Those toxic chemicals from the CSG mining operations , leeching into the ocean from the underground lava tubes should totally kill it . I guess thats what they mean by protection of the reef into the Coral Sea .
Basically you have to read everything they say as double speak . Say one thing to mean another .

I thought coral reefs thrive in warm water. Thats why they're there in Australia. A slight rise in temp will make not one bit of difference to them.

I was under the impression that coral reefs were very sensitive to temperature changes. The logic just doesn't make sense either. Just because they thrive in warm water, it doesn't mean there isn't a sensitive upper threshold.

I addressed that issue, with a link included, in THIS REPLY.

Do it slowly, you will trigger the collapse. Blow it up fast enough so nothing collapses will also trigger a tsunami from the energy of the explosives used (Tsunami Bomb)

There's really nothing you can do until the "tractor beam" is invented.
