Coral Microbial Communities Along a Natural pH Gradient: How low can the pH gradient go ... and coral microbial communities still survive?

Subject Index Summary
Floods (Europe): In spite of climate-alarmist claims to the contrary, there do not appear to have been any increases in either floods or properly-adjusted flood damages throughout all of Europe over the past few decades, which climate alarmists contend was the warmest of the past thousand or more years. In fact, real-world data indicate that, in many instances, just the opposite has occurred.
