This photo, provided by Georgia Tech climate scientist Kim Cobb, shows her in November at the remote Pacific island of Kiritimati, finding a bit of hope and life amid what in April was a ghost town of dead coral. Cobb used bags and drills to examine the coral and take core samples. Yellow coral is healthy, white is not, and some of the other colors are actually algae over dead coral.
