Is it true what they say?

“Atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration is expected to exceed 500 parts per million and global temperatures to rise by at least 2°C by 2050 to 2100

“Globally, best estimates suggest that about 10% of coral reefs are already degraded, many beyond recovery, and another 20% are likely to decline further within the next 20 years. At least two-thirds of the world’s coral reefs may collapse ecologically within the lifetime of our grandchildren, unless we implement effective management of these ecosystems as an urgent priority.”

“Recent UNEP (United Nations Environment Programmes) estimates have put the loss of reefs by the year 2100 at 30-50% of currently healthy coral reefs.”
