Clumped-isotope thermometry measurements of carbonate samples deposited in the Bolivian Altiplano as early as 28.5 million years ago and buried up to ~5000 meters deep exhibit no relationship between burial depth and apparent temperature, and largely yield temperatures within error of plausible Earth-surface conditions. These results counter the predictions of Sempere et al. and support our previous conclusions regarding the uplift of the Altiplano.
