The Great Barrier Reef, which is likely to disappear by 2100, according to UNESCO, is "not in danger", according to UNESCO.
It sounds a lot like madness or doublethink - accepting two mutually contradictory beliefs as correct - except this is what's happening right now. The reef is safe, the reef is dying. The Federal Government celebrates a "big win" while reef scientists warn that 50 per cent of the reef is in massive decline.
