Proof that it's ocean warming, not global warming –– 28 Aug 2005 - Here’s an article that blames global warming for the mass extinction at the end-Permian, but it actually proves something else.  "A dramatic rise in carbon dioxide caused temperatures to soar to 10 to 30 degrees Celsius higher than today," the article begins. "The warming had a profound impact on the oceans .... Temperatures in higher latitudes rose so much that the oceans warmed to a depth of about 3,000m (10,000ft). (This) adds to the growing body of evidence that higher temperatures, rather than a giant space rock hitting the planet, led to the greatest mass extinction in history."

"(This) supports the view that extensive volcanic activity over the course of hundreds of thousands of years released large amounts of carbon dioxide and sulphur dioxide into the air, gradually warming up the planet.

They’ve got it backwards! The CO2 didn’t heat the oceans. Underwater volcanic activity heated the oceans, and then CO2 levels rose. It’s not global warming, it’’s ocean warming, and it’s leading us into the next ice age. (How is CO2 supposed to heat the oceans anyway?)
