About 56 million years past, our Earth experienced a natural period of global warming triggered by an eruption of a volcano. This era was referred to as the Paleocene-Eocene Thermal Maximum (PETM) and there are large amounts of carbonic acid gas discharged into the atmosphere. This caused about eight-degree Celsius surface global warming within the high latitudes. Many studies have shown that in this era ocean acidification caused mass extinctions within the deep ocean and there have been changes within the biota in the surface ocean.
