TheIndependenceof Global Warming on Residence Time of CO2

The author of this Skeptical Science post has used a very clever method to counter claims that the present and persistent rise in atmospheric CO2 is anthropogenic.  He managed to get a peer reviewed paper published on this subject because most scientists find it so obvious that there was nothing published to cite as an argument against the naysayers.

When you check his blog you’ll see that the Earth is a net carbon sync but just can’t keep up with the human caused emissions. 

Another interesting fact is that the ocean is absorbing a net gain in carbon [becoming more acidic] and not as most would think.  Opinion is that as the ocean temperature increases it outgases CO2.  Time for a rethink, huh?
