"This alga plants do indeed fotosintesa process, even in the water," he said. Fotosintesa process, he said, require carbon dioxide (CO2) and sunlight, then produce oxygen (O2), water and sugar. The CO2 which is the main material fotosintesa process, he said, is also available in the sea.

He said that, at night, while coral reefs do not asimilasi, this plant would produce CO2. "Carbon is produced at night is what becomes the main material of a fotosintesa process," he said.

Therefore, he continued, the existence of coral reefs should be maintained and utilized as well as possible to anticipate the change of climate at this time is not stabilized.
