Satirist writes obituary for the Great Barrier Reef. Internet takes him all too seriously.

On the list of things people are lamenting online this week is how humans let the #GreatBarrierReef perish from the face of the Earth. This comes in response to a tongue-in-cheek obituary for the natural wonder published in Outside, “Great Barrier Reef (25 Million BC-2016),” by the writer Rowan Jacobsen. Almost immediately, the un-ironic eulogies and self-hatred came pouring in: I don't want to ruin anyone's day, but I do want you to know that today The Great Barrier Reef is declared officially dead. pic.twitter.com/sIcRDX7W8H — ♡ gorgeous people ♡ (@YouAsTheEarth) October 14, 2016 I'm so pissed at humanity right now. We're killing the planet
