Australia Covered Up Reef Destruction in UN Report TheLipTV


Australia covered up the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef along with potential threats to the Tasmania wilderness and Kakadu in a UN report on the impact of climate change. The Australian government ordered the chapter be removed from the report, issued by Unesco and the UN Environment Program on Thursday, over fears it could deter visitors to the World Heritage Sites, which attract billions of dollars in tourism each year. This comes after reports over the weekend showing that mass bleaching has killed over 35 percent of coral in the northern and central parts of the Great Barrier Reef. We look at how climate change is destroying the Great Barrier Reef on the Lip News with Elliot Hill and Joya Mia Italiano.
