Several recent studies show that the America's coral reef system in the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans are being degraded by natural and man-made factors. This paper examines the magnitude of the problem and addresses possible solutions. The paper argues that once coral reefs die, they are gone for ever and questions whether mankind can save their destruction.

From the Paper:

"It remains to be seen whether these efforts would go far enough to address the urgency, which this matter requires. Policy makers should appropriate enough resources to address such problem. These are bold measures but unless the are aggressively implemented, the global Coral Reef system may be destroyed in the years to come, this is the reason why environmental pollution should be taken more seriously, the Kyoto conference held in Japan a few years ago was a right step and hopefully the leaders of the industrialized countries, who are also responsible for over two-thirds of the global industrial pollution should live up to their commitments to reduce industrial emissions. It is regrettable that President Bush's Administration refused to live up to the treaty negotiated by members of the global community of which the United States was a party to."
