Summary of Article: A recent government report in Australia revealed that the Great Barrier Reef is in great danger. The report was supposed to reassure the United Nations Education and Scientific Organization that the Great Barrier Reef was not in danger and that the risks were being handled, but it proved the opposite. Climate change, flow of farm chemicals and costal sediment is creating a great threat for one of Australia's treasures. In addition, the Queensland State Government plans on building one of the world's largest coal mines 200 miles from the reef. However, the report failed to mention the government's intentions and how harmful this would be to the reef. Even without the coal mine the reef is suffering, according to scientists from the ARC Center of Excellence of Coral Reef Studies. They found the reef has suffered the worst coral bleaching and die off product ever recorded. Nonetheless there is hope thanks to the Queensland Government's, "Reef 2050 Plan." This plan outlines 151 different measures to limit segmentation and nitrogen runoff and is currently underway. However, this plan is extremely expensive it is estimated that it would cost about $6 billion, to be spent over 10 years. The report didn't offer any new spending measures for the reef or ways to limit pollution. Last month, the government ratified the Paris Agreement, which focuses on climate change and reducing greenhouse gas emissions to the rates they were in 2005. Nontheless, the Great Barrier Reef is still a huge issue that needs to be addressed before we destroy it.
