Is pollution causing regional coral extinctions?

"...factors such as global warming leading to coral bleaching are having significant impacts, but I think it's a mistake to blame all the devastation we've witnessed in past decades on global factors. Local nutrient pollution problems can be addressed and if we do that, I think it's clear that corals will strongly benefit."
Brian Lapointe, as quoted by Mark Schrope in Changes in reef latitude.
