Our work cited in The New Yorker magazine

It’s great to see our science reaching the public! My recent Nature commentary was cited this month in The New Yorker as the basis for the amount of coral reef destruction resulting from China’s recent push to expand their territory in the South China Sea. Dr. Marcia Bjornerud’s compelling retrospective article, “Six Earth-Moving Moments of 2015”, highlights China’s land-building activities among the most “notable ground-shifting events of 2015” and discusses how these events “altered not only our landscapes but also our thinking about how Earth works.”
