- If current trends continue, severe bleaching will occur every year on 99% of the world's coral reefs within this century

- More ambitious emissions reductions may give reefs an average of 11 extra years before annual bleaching strikes

- High-resolution predictions of annual coral bleaching can help prioritize reefs for conservation
