Murdoch has a squiz at the reef & declared it perfectly fine: #Auspol

After all the fuss of UNESCO nearly putting the Great Barrier Reef on its World Heritage In Danger list, it’s come as a huge relief to everyone that media baron Rupert Murdoch has had a squiz at the reef and declared it perfectly fine:
1. To the naked eye, it could look like nothing much has changed…

  
2. But people who have been taking a closer look are worried about studies like this one from the Australian Institute of Marine Studies that found coral cover has been reduced to half of what it was in the ’80s. They’ll be glad to hear the good news!

  

3. Other so-called scientists (because they are scientists and that is what they are called) thought that damage from cyclones has contributed to the decline of the reef.

  
4. Here’s another pic of blue coral before and after Cyclone Ita, which we can all agree looks exactly the same!
