One of Nature's ways to remove excess greenhouse gasses emissions from the atmosphere is to use the oceans as a giant sinkhole dump for them. However, the Oceans are quickly reaching the limits of its capacity for absorbing more greenhouse gasses without changing into huge, watery acid pits.
I'd be willing to speculate that your only 'scientific' interest is political science. Let's face it......that's why most of you alarmists are here. That is to promote more government authority over the people and business because it somehow seems your life will be better for it. Nothing could be further from the truth, but that's beside the point.
Most of you only read what you're fed from the science skeptic blogster.....you really could care less about facts and science.

1. You ask for proof you're wrong.

3. Deny, denigrate & deflection, right dumbass ???
Grow a pair, attach them to your foot.....it doesn't really matter in your case, except maybe your ball getting kicked daily will become tolerable....
and all of this is true because a disillusioned home schooled brat says so?

Brain Gone, thinks the oceans are carbonated ???
The oceans contain about 50 times more CO 2 than the atmosphere and 19 times more than the land biosphere. CO 2 moves between the atmosphere and the ocean by molecular diffusion when there is a difference between CO 2 gas pressure (pCO 2 ) between the atmosphere and oceans. For example, when the atmospheric pCO 2 is higher than the surface ocean, CO 2 diffuses across the air-sea boundary into the sea water.

The oceans are able to hold much more carbon than the atmosphere because most of the CO 2 that diffuses into the oceans reacts with the water to form carbonic acid and its dissociation products, bicarbonate and carbonate ions . The conversion of CO 2 gas into nongaseous forms such as carbonic acid and bicarbonate and carbonate ions effectively reduces the CO 2 gas pressure in the water, thereby allowing more diffusion from the atmosphere.

The oceans are mixed much more slowly than the atmosphere, so there are large horizontal and vertical changes in CO 2 concentration. In general, tropical waters release CO 2 to the atmosphere, whereas high-latitude oceans take up CO 2 from the atmosphere. CO 2 is also about 10 percent higher in the deep ocean than at the surface. The two basic mechanisms that control the distribution of carbon in the oceans are referred to as the solubility pump and the biological pump.

BTW, CO2 in the oceans feed plankton, this is necessary to sustain life as we know it on Earth.

Sit by the ocean shore and listen to the hiss as the waves lap onto the warm beach and dissolved gas bubbles out.

From - http://iopscience.iop.org/1748-9326/8/2/02402...

The public perception of a scientific consensus on AGW is a necessary element in public support for climate policy (Ding et al2011). However, there is a significant gap between public perception and reality, with 57% of the US public either disagreeing or unaware that scientists overwhelmingly agree that the earth is warming due to human activity (Pew 2012).

Contributing to this 'consensus gap' are campaigns designed to confuse the public about the level of agreement among climate scientists. In 1991, Western Fuels Association conducted a $510,000 campaign whose primary goal was to 'reposition global warming as theory (not fact)'. A key strategy involved constructing the impression of active scientific debate using dissenting scientists as spokesmen (Oreskes 2010). The situation is exacerbated by media treatment of the climate issue, where the normative practice of providing opposing sides with equal attention has allowed a vocal minority to have their views amplified (Boykoff and Boykoff 2004). While there are indications that the situation has improved in the UK and USA prestige press (Boykoff 2007), the UK tabloid press showed no indication of improvement from 2000 to 2006 (Boykoff and Mansfield 2008).

The narrative presented by some dissenters is that the scientific consensus is '...on the point of collapse'(Oddie 2012) while '...the number of scientific "heretics" is growing with each passing year'(Allègre et al2012). A systematic, comprehensive review of the literature provides quantitative evidence countering this assertion. The number of papers rejecting AGW is a miniscule proportion of the published research, with the percentage slightly decreasing over time. Among papers expressing a position on AGW, an overwhelming percentage (97.2% based on self-ratings, 97.1% based on abstract ratings) endorses the scientific consensus on AGW.
