Oceanic Uptake of Atmospheric CO2?

Has oceanic uptake of CO2 become a significant factor?

Has oceanic uptake of CO2 become a significant factor?

Yearly data update is now available on Mauna Loa carbon dioxide atmospheric content in Mauna Loa CO2 record posts smallest yearly gain in its history – maybe at Watt’s Up With That?

What we see is the smallest increase in carbon dioxide atmospheric content, apparently, in the history of this observation.

There is a little concern that the data may not be “final” for a few months.

We know the ocean is cooling from the nearly unmentionable Argo float data. The oceanic uptake should be a very significant factor in the atmospheric observation. Reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere will not help humans, however, or human food either. Maybe more carbon dioxide in the ocean will increase the supply of seafood. If the Earth does get colder, as it shows every indication of doing, we will need more food from somewhere. Acidity will be the next complaint we hear, I think some such comment is coming in now . . .
