Australia’s iconic Great Barrier Reef will die unless radical climate action is taken, including phasing out coal-fueled power, the Sydney Morning Herald reported, citing a report by a government agency.

The reef will collapse if the planet warms by another half a degree, according to a private report prepared by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority –- the government’s lead agency for managing the reef — and obtained by the SMH under freedom of information laws, the paper said.
