Former JCU marine physicist Peter Ridd says the Great Barrier Reef is currently experiencing a “record high coral reef.”

“This is data accumulated for some time, which … shows that it’s actually on a record high coral reef,” he told Sky News Australia.

“The Great Barrier Reef is home to more corals than it was when the record began in 1985.

“There are twice as many corals as a giant cyclone passed through a reef around 2011 and 2012. This record-high coral cover has three catastrophic unprecedented bleachings in the last five years. It seems that there was an event.

“So you have to wonder if these bleaching phenomena were probably as devastating as these experts claimed.”
