Well, just to bring things a bit more into perspective for you.
Remember that wonderful diving you did off Malta? (Gibralter?) How were the corals then, colourful or dead (bleached). As a result, great marine life or not?

Well, that's what might happen according to this article to the grains that we eat, such as rice, basic sustainable foods etc.

Friday thread or not? Today yes, tomorrow in a few decades?

I find the humour in these posts as well, don't doubt that. And I also studied Computer Science in times that eased our conscience where we asked "but what will people do?" and were met with the answer "they'll have more free-time!!!". Reality today is unemployment.

Hopefully we've learned from our mistakes when it comes to this topic.
The problem with reports like the one on Tagesschau yesterday is how to interpretate them. Evidently something is going on enough to make it a news worthy item but if you cry wolf too soon and too often then you get a kind of not-that-again mentality, if you cry wolf too late then you are fornicated. At the moment there is nothing we can do and what will happen will happen and we are now just along for the ride.
The corals in the med seem to be doing alright, although the Maltese ones got a right hammering from the strongest Grigale for over 50 years. Having said that there has been a new reef found off the coast of Puglia, totally pristine and as yet not fully charted.
