Abstract
    About 250 million years ago, extremely hot ocean temperatures had lethal effects on ocean life. In the next 100 years, it is projected that Earth will move to a greenhouse climate state. The future ocean will not only be hotter but also more acidic and will contain extended zones with reduced oxygen. Study of past periods of global warming helps to project what Earth and its biota will be like in this new state and what the journey to that state will entail.
