Coral “reefs can’t be made whole again: if they recover at all it will be slowly, and in the face of ongoing warming that seems unlikely. But at the very least, the nations that sustained this damage should be compensated. Exxon and its brethren made record profits in the last decades of denial and deceit; that money should rightfully go to pay for the damage it caused, and to build the energy systems that can power our lives without destruction.” (https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2016/aug/17/the-coral-die-off-crisis-is-a-climate-and-exxon-fired-the-gun)

If Exxon makes any reparations for knowing about global warming 40 years ago, quietly protecting its business infrastructure, while simultaneously funding climate denial groups, to protect its market, …it will be slowly, and in the face of ongoing warming that seems unlikely.
