Default Death of coral reefs could devastate nations

Death of coral reefs could devastate nations
By Brian Skoloff
Mar. 25, 2010

What if all coral reefs die? Experts are scared - Yahoo! News
excerpt from above:
Quote:
Coral reefs are dying, and scientists and governments around the world are contemplating what will happen if they disappear altogether.

The idea positively scares them.

Coral reefs are part of the foundation of the ocean food chain. Nearly half the fish the world eats make their homes around them. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide by some estimates, 1 billion across Asia alone depend on them for their food and their livelihoods.

If the reefs vanished, experts say, hunger, poverty and political instability could ensue...
