Pieter Tans has most recently been quoted in an article called Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is rising at the fastest rate ever recorded. Pieter Tans said, “Over the last decade, a more average rate [of increase] is about 2.4 parts per million per year. So record-high CO2 emissions, even though they stay flat, translates directly into a record-high CO2 increase [in the atmosphere. If we then proceeded by technical means – by some invention or some chemical engineering development – to pull CO2 out of the atmosphere and bury it, then the additional CO2 that's in the oceans will come back into the atmosphere.”.

Over the last decade, a more average rate [of increase] is about 2.4 parts per million per year. So record-high CO2 emissions, even though they stay flat, translates directly into a record-high CO2 increase [in the atmosphere. If we then proceeded by technical means – by some invention or some chemical engineering development – to pull CO2 out of the atmosphere and bury it, then the additional CO2 that's in the oceans will come back into the atmosphere.

It's not enough to pull the excess that's in the atmosphere at that time – we'd also have to pull out what went into the oceans. If we want to undo this, we would have to artificially pull out all of the cumulative emissions since preindustrial times.
