Human made disaster- coral reef

Another great summary from TED. Coral reef ecologist Jeremy Jackson; How we wreckled the ocean.

The habitat distruction is unbelievable,
the area of the ocean floor that has been transformed from forest to level mud,to parking lot, is equivalent to the entire area of all the forests that have ever been cut down, on all of the earth in the history of humanity, and we manage to do that in the last 100 to 150 years.
