As a minor followup to my post “Could CO2 have lowered the rate of natural warming?” lets consider ocean warming.
From 1900 to 1945 oceans were warming at a rate of 0.0116188C per year.
After 1945 oceans were warming at a rate of 0.00654978C per year.
Which means the massive 1945 increase in CO2 after 1945 slowed the rate of ocean warming by 0.00506902C per year. Which is a drop off 44%.
