Dear Scott,

Some good ideas, a lot of bla bla bla
Thanks to quote me ; it is not increase sensitivity to CO2 for bleaching, it is CO2 the cause of bleaching.
For the glacial/interglacial CaCO3 preservation event due to reef drowning, see my 3-boxes model, long time ago, publication available in www.reefbase.org, publication>Serch Pecheux.
20 ppm CO2 more, 700 m deepening of CCD.
Why 260 and not 280 ppm, incomprehensible. You have to do biology.
