This is misleading. We do not “depend” on the ocean for oxygen as the atmospheric reservoir has more than sufficiently built up over the last 2 billion years. About half of the slow drop that built it up came from the oceans, but even if it ceased doing so tomorrow we wouldn’t be deprived of O2 for a long time.

Famous last words. I think there's a lot we can't predict, and I wouldn't be so sure we wouldn't be fucked.
