A new study finds that in the last 27 years, half of Australia's Great Barrier Reef coral has died. Gwen Ifill talks to Nancy Knowlton, a coral reef biologist and chair of Marine Science at the Smithsonian Institution, about ecological and economical consequences of the collapse, as well as measures to help mediate the decline.,, http://www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/climate-change/july-dec12/reef_10-02.html
