The amount of carbon absorbed by plant plankton in large segments of the Pacific Ocean is much less than previously estimated, researchers say.

So much for all the happy talk about us not having anything to be concerned about.

so why has the amount of co2 in the atmosphere not gone up faster than the models said? If it did why is the air not warmer than the models predicted? the air is cooler than the models said, not warmer.

We don't have all of the answers yet.

When we do it will likely be too late to do more than curse our former leaders and duck personal responsibility for what happened.

While we don't know everything ... we do know enough.
