Last month we admired Ian Williams for persuading NBC to pay for his scuba reporting from the coral reefs of the Phi Phi islands off Thailand. Now Daniel Sieberg too dons his wet suit for his save-the-reefs report on CBS, although his expense account did not stretch to quite as exotic a location. Marine biologist Andrew Baker has a plan to save coral from the bleaching death caused by global warming by injecting them with strains of algae that tolerate temperature change. Those algae are found in Madagascar and Kenya and the Maldives--but Sieberg had to content himself with a quick dive near Baker's laboratory at Biscayne Bay.
