Following is a chart showing the definite physical relationship between atmospheric carbon dioxide and sea surface temperatures.
It can be regarded as the experience curve of reality.
I used CO2 data from Mauna Loa as it is at a higher elevation and well mixed.
I used recent global average sea surface temperatures based on satellite sensing as they are the only reliable data we have on average SST.
I used a 21 year moving average of SST values as the oceans breathe carbon dioxide in and out with the El Nino and La Nina cycles.
The net result is a clear firm relationship.
It is what would be expected from the solubility curve of CO2 in water.
The little bumps on the line can be traced to volcanic events.
I note that the oceans scavenge excess CO2 from volcanic events within about 2 years.
This chart shows that it is physically impossible for man-made emissions of carbon dioxide to accumulate in the atmosphere.
It proves that CO2 is not a pollutant.

And Jen is reminded of a note from Arnost, dated March 29, 2007 and entitled ‘Why Are There No Major “Spikes or Troughs” in the Official Direct Measurements of C02?’ click here: http://www.jennifermarohasy.com/blog/archives/001976.html
