Scientists use ancient marine fossils to unravel longstanding 

climate puzzle by Cardiff University



Ancient marine fossils reveal how rising sea levels trapped carbon 

in the oceans preventing extinction-level global warming 14 million

years ago.  Fossil records suggest high levels of carbon was captured 

in ocean sediment. Significant volcanic activity had previously led 

to extinction level events. RyanMorrison, Daily Mail, January 9, 2020
