5. It took him by surprise because they surveyed back in july and found no problems
All you armchair scientists should calm down and realize that not everyone goes in with a preconceived notion of doom. Scientists are guided by what happened previously, and the reports I had seen, from folks studying this first hand, indicated that there were no visible problems back in the middle of the event in July in these coral reefs. Now there are. It will now take time and effort to figure out the exact cause and mechanism of this.
