  • In our simulation of future ocean conditions, we find an undersaturation with respect to carbonate in the deep ocean that exceeds that experienced during the Palaeocene-Eocene thermal maximum and could endanger calcifying organisms.

  • Combined with the “we’ve moved on, why don’t you?” meme, they hope to provide a shell hopefully not a CaCO2 shell given the worry about future undersaturation and all that, within which they can maintain the story to the public that the science is agreed upon and people like Steve M are merely nipping at their heels.
