Daniel Bang A38965360 ISP 221 Chapters 11-15 The chapter starts out by questioning if the world’s coral reefs are really on the brink of collapse. Flanery goes on by saying how by way of one of his ventures he did not see any coral gardens, no medusa nor any fishes. It was filled with waste, and this is not even the beginning of it. Disturbing reef biodiversity can lead to outbreaks of plague species and worse, polluted cities. A survey conducted in 2003 said that live coral cover had dropped to less than 10% of half of the reef’s area. He points out that Australia emits more carbon dioxide per capita than any people on Earth. Two ways to respond to this is either adaptation or migration. There are nations, nevertheless, that depend upon reefs for survival. As discussed in the book up to this point, there has not been a single species known to have become extinct as a consequence of climate change. However this chapter starts talking about some species that have begun to vanish.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
