Great Barrier Reef authorities have just said YES to coal port companies dumping dredge waste inside this World Heritage Area – all to make way a coal ship superhighway through our Reef.

Nemo’s dead and we killed him

The message should be that it isn’t too late for Australia to lift its game and better protect the Great Barrier Reef, not we should all give up because the Great Barrier Reef is supposedly dead,“ Terry Hughes, director of the ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies, told The Huffington Post.

The Great Barrier Reef isn’t dead (yet)

This is a wake up call. This is no joke and the long term ramifications are hard to fathom. What is clear that action is required now. I have visited the GBR recently and I can not express what a loss this would be to each and everyone and everything. This is not only a great wonder of the planet but one of the most beautiful and complex living systems in the world and devastating for the wonder that is planet earth.

Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day Fritter and waste the hours in an off-hand way Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town Waiting for someone or something to show you the way Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today And then one day you find ten years have got behind you No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun And you run and you run to catch up with the sun but it’s sinking Racing around to come up behind you again The sun is the same in a relative way, but you’re older Shorter of breath and one day closer to death Pink Floyd - Time - 1973 2015 05 27 141234 London 1HDR

Jessica Ennis, GBR, rounds the turn in the 200 meters, of the heptathlon, at the 2102 London Olympics. She later won the event in front of her home crowd. The stadium was electric! One of the most memorable olympic experiences for me.
