Assuming that more CO2 will cause climate change is wrong. CO2 absorbs all infrared emitted by the Earth at 15 microns. More CO2 cannot absorb more since all 15 micron radiation is already absorbed. (Google "The Lynching of Carbon Dioxide - The Innocent Source of Life", by Dr. Martin Hertzberg). Carbon dioxide is transparent to other infrared wavelengths, which allows CO2 lasers to be very efficient.
Carbonic acid sinks in water. This means the acid will disappear as it is formed. Actually, oceans are releasing CO2 due to post-iceage warming.

About once a month at Sigma Xi headquarters, we liven up the lunch hour with an American Scientist Pizza Lunch talk. In these informal lectures, scientists describe new research to nonscientists. The series is light on jargon but heavy on solid science. Each Pizza Lunch offers an in-depth look at its subject, whether it's bedbugs or the smart grid.

JSTOR, the online academic archive, now contains complete back issues of American Scientist from its inception in 1913 (as Sigma Xi Quarterly) through 2005.
The table of contents for each issue is freely available to all users; those with institutional access can read each complete issue.
