Paper finds lifetime of CO2 in atmosphere is only 5.4 years

The Hockey Schtick reports:

A paper presented at the SEVENTEENTH SYMPOSIUM ON THERMOPHYSICAL PROPERTIES finds that the lifetime and residence time of man-made CO2 in the atmosphere are only about 5.4 years, far less than assumed by the IPCC.

  2. Last time I study marine chemistry, The ocean was highly buffered. I guess Al and his idiot core of so called scientists now tell everyone, that is untrue. Someone needs to tell seawater that it is not behaving in a politically correct way.

  3. At least highly inconvenient. I don’t expect to read about this in the major newspapers or hear it on CBS news in any article that mentions a CO2 lifetime of centuries.

  4. What are the odds that someone will try to link this with “ocean acidification”?
    Claiming that this must mean that there is more CO2 reducing the pH of seawater…
