"global warning." >> good evening. thanks for joining us. the fallout from president trump's historic announcement from the paris climate accord met with celebration from his base, but condemnation from many ceos and global leaders. the french president saying the u.s. has turned its back on the
1:20 am
world. but the decision could reverberate far beyond the political realm. tonight abc's matt gutman takes us on a journey around the globe to confront what scientists see as disturbing signs of global warning. >> reporter: across the globe reports of bizarre, seemingly unrelated phenomena. cicadas emerging four years early in washington, d.c. poppy in the middle east spontaneously growing much more potent, producing heroin of astonishing strength. airline pilots reporting turbulence more violent than ever experienced before. record numbers of great white sharks -- >> got to be frightening if you're thinking about going into the water here. >> reporter: swarming feet off of popular california beaches. scientists insist those strange phenomena are actually related, triggered by global warming. which critics say president trump disavowed today. >> the united states will
1:21 am
withdraw from the paris climate accord. >> reporter: the president pledged to "keep america first" by rejecting that 2015 nonbinding agreement signed by 174 countries to cut back on carbon emissions. >> i was elected to represent the citizens of pittsburgh, not paris. i promised i would exit or renegotiate any deal which fails to serve america's interests. >> reporter: but all of the world's pollution has imperiled the planet as we learned deeping up with scientists across the pacific, in australia, hawaii, and california on a forensic investigation of what they say is a matter of terrifying urgency. >> if we do not stay the warming on high pressure planet, corals will be the last of our worries. it's our species that will be vulnerable. >> reporter: there have been sayi sightings. >> approximately 15 great white sharks.
1:22 am
>> reporter: beach closures, last month an attack. every week professor chris lowe, head of cal state long beach's shark lab, deploys a small armada of boats, jet skis, drones, and helicopters to take a rough census of the swarming great whites by spearing them with a tag like this. on a foggy morning last month, we joined them. >> hey, chris, good to see you. >> reporter: a trip out shockingly short because the predators are shockingly close, cruising just feet off the beach, flanked by the multi-million dollar homes. so white sharks are born at about 4 1/2 to 5 feet long, a baby white shark. about 60 pounds. >> okay. looks like you're about to go spear fishing. >> sort of. trying to find sharks. >> you jab this and what releases? >> the dart this will come off. this will stay under the skin. it will just get pulled away as the shark swim swims away this will be dangling off the shark. >> reporter: to tag them you can't stay in the boat.
1:23 am
>> you've got to go on the tug board? >> yeah, yeah. >> reporter: the water is murky and the fog is thick. the sharks announce themselves, fins cutting right through the water. >> here, fishy fishy fishy. oh! okay, so he missed. >> reporter: finally the grad student finds his groove from this drone, watch him on this g. the tags relay the shark's information to receivers placed up and down the california coast. >> were you surprise the at the sheer number of s >> well, yeah. i had to pinch myself. this is crazy. this is long beach. i've been working here 30 years. studying sharks. i never thought i would actually see the day where i would see that many in one morning. >> reporter: but why are they here? >> the water's warm. it's shallow. so there's not a lot of predators. then there's lots of food. >> reporter: warmer water has been a boon to great whites.
1:24 am
saving many pacific sharks their annual migration south to mexico for the winter. but it is cooking a species anchored to the seabed. coral are tiny, mysterious creatures living in dazzling, colorful colonies. but they're builders. over generations their exoskeletons create tree-like shapes which 25% of the world's fish depend on. the granddaddy of coral is the great barrier reef, the world's largest living organism. it s miles of the australian coast, basically the distance between miami and maine. but warmer than normal sea temps cause coral bleaching which occurs which the corals expel the algae that live in their tissue. what you're saying that is 50% of what is arguably the largest living organism on earth is dead? or will have died in 18 months of bleaching? >> 50% of the corals died in the
1:25 am
last 18 months. >> and this is not -- they're not going to recover? >> once you're dead, you're dead. right? >> reporter: last year the northern third of the barrier reef experienced bleaching, killing 30% of the reef overall. this year an estimated 19% died in the middle section of the reef and the worst may not be over. that's why we've flown across the globe towards the epicenter of this environmental disaster, townsville, australia. >> glad to meet you, welcome to australia, welcome to the great barrier reef. >> it's beautiful. >> reporter: scott herren is part of a team from noaa's reef watch which predicted the past two bleachings at the great barrier reef in 2016 and 2017. they're terrified about the prospects of a potentially cass alcoholismic third consecutive bleaching. herren is the kind who rides his bike to work. but we are taking him on a much longer ride. up the coast to mission beach.
1:26 am
the evening before our big dive, we map out the route with scott and our guide, karen bell. >> all right, we're going to depart from here. we'll go all the way out here along this sort of -- through the potter roofs. a lot of this has limited damage to it. >> reporter: suddenly i realize the mortality is happening now. much of it not even documented. >> this is 90% dead all along this wall. and it was dead pretty much two or three weeks ago. so anything that was left, that mortality level will be even higher. >> what's the like to see the stuff that you've grown to love and basically care for die like that? >> it just rips your heart out. >> reporter: the next morning, karen brings the boat and we load in. you may ask yourself, why do they have so much gear? why the pelican cases? the answer is that we have a couple of really cool gizmos. we've got your 360 cameras, your underwater cameras, some of the stuff has never been tried
1:27 am
before. so fingers crossed. the water's flat and we skim across for an hour to the first pristine reef. the idea is that before we see the devastation, they want me to see a vibrant, healthy reef. there's just one problem. >> [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. >> reporter: much is already dead. >> at least 50% mortality. >> reporter: two other spots and a lot of cursing later, we decide it's as good as we'll get. scott and i splash in. >> these are astounding colors. astounding colors. but that's not how coral are supposed to look. >> reporter: what we see slaps the words out of everyone's mouth. >> i want you to come and look in here. the structure and the variety of shapes in these pieces that have bleached.
1:28 am
>> reporter: we swim back to the surface. where do we head to now? >> i dived on this reef over ten years ago with some other folks that i work with and worked with at the time. at noaa. and at that time it was this amazing, beautiful, vibrant reef. there were sharks swimming around. cuttlefish that we saw. moray eels coming out. and the corals looked magnificent. >> reporter: karen shows us what eddy reef looked like months ago. those coral radiating with color. branches long and unbroken. the water clear as vodka. but a startling difference awaits when we go back under. >> i can remember this reef and the dive i had ten years ago. that diversity of corals. this is the same reef. but it's not the same reef.
1:29 am
>> reporter: there's so much stuff floating around in the water, it's hard to see because it's basically coral carcass. >> on this coral, you see the full transition from right to left. floresing coral recently dead coral with algae and dead coral for quite some time. >> reporter: still, there are fish. there are colors. we see this giant clam, to a novice like me it's still beautiful. and that is part of the problem. >> what percent would you say is alive and thriving? >> around 80% to 90% of this reef is impacted. >> reporter: we hop back on board. bleached coral can recover but much doesn't. once the coral dies the skeleton gets colonized by a shaggy carpet of algae. >> it's all bleached. it's all brown. that's all -- the brown is all morbidity. >> nothing dead here 12 weeks
1:30 am
ago? nothing dead? wow. >> reporter: the food chain that feeds the larger fish that in turn feed us, potentially cass alcoholismicly affected. people who work on the reef, like karen, say it's like having a death in the family. many australian lawmakers dispute terry hughes' numbers, even mocking conservationists. so do many in the country's $5 billion a year coral tourism industry. we meet cole mckenzie, chief executive of marine park tourism operators in cannes, the capital of reef tourism. you can take your pick of transportation. boats or helicopters. people like terry hughes and noaa say that basically over the past 18 months, nearly 50% of the reef has died. an additional portion has been bleached and may survive. but that's a significant mortality. >> it is a significant mortality. and we would be absolutely in bits if it was true. fortunately it's simply in make
1:31 am
believe land. >> make believe land? these are scientists, the government entrusts them, my government entrusts them. what's going on here? are you saying they're lying? they're making it up? >> i would think noaa is taking their advice from some of the scientists here and trying to make a point. >> reporter: is there an exit ramp from the highway so many say we're on to ecological doom? the possible answer may lie 4,600 miles away on this tiny sliver of a hawaiian island. ...i kept looking for ways to manage my symptoms. i thought i was doing okay... then it hit me... ...managing was all i was doing. when i told my doctor,... ...i learned humira is for people who still have symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease... ...even after trying other medications. in clinical studies,... the majority of people on humira... saw significant symptom relief... ...and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability... fight infections, including tuberculosis.
1:32 am
serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened;... have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where... ...certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb,... ...hepatitis b, are prone to infections,... ...or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. just managing your symptoms? ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible. we can'twhy?y here! terrible toilet paper! i'll never get clean! way ahead of you.

1:36 am
of the great barrier reef of australia, the largest living organism on earth now in the throes of death. as scientists point to warming waters due to climate change. on the island of oahu, one researcher has discovered a glimmer of hope. >> reporter: the once resplendent reefs of australia revealed the ugly truth. huge mortality to the cradle of much of what lives in the sea. dive after dive revealed dead or dying reef. but 4,600 miles away, these infant corals, babies coddled in cargo nets in the gentle currents of hawaii, could hold a key to the species' survival. we've met up with the shepherd of this little flock of sea creatu creatures in the bay off oahu. quite a rendezvous at sea.
1:37 am
hi, ruth. >> nice to meet you. we can do things here that can't be done anywhere else in the world. >> this is the great location to experiment, because this is the future. >> that's the holy grail. to plant a reef that can actually persist in the conditions that we know are probably going to kill them if we don't attempt to adapt them for the future. >> on a scale that's large enough to make a difference? >> absolutely. >> reporter: we suit up for another coral dive. something miraculous appears to be happening. >> you can see we have almost 100% cover of coral here. >> astonishing. >> really not a lot of species diversity, but many, many corals packed into the space. >> it's so different than what we saw in the great barrier reef. you think this is 100%.
