The coral on the Great Barrier Reef is dying, isn’t it?

Maybe not. Peter Ridd, a scientist who has studied the coral along the Great Barrier Reef for over thirty years is not so sure. He is open-minded: “We may indeed have a Great Barrier Reef crisis, but the science is so flawed that it is impossible to tell its actual dimensions.” Yet he has been accused of scientific misconduct by critics who are accomplished at sweeping generalizations and ad hominem attacks, but are not responding with data of their own. I find this deplorable. I am not qualified to judge the science, but I would like to see the debate grounded in data and evidence.
