"Increases in the abundances of atmospheric greenhouse gases since the
industrial revolution are largely responsible for the observed change in climate
 [IPCC2007]. However, climate projections have model uncertainties that
overwhelm the uncertainties in greenhouse gas measurements.

We present here an index that is directly proportional to the direct forcing of
climate; and which contains relatively little uncertainty. Because it is based on
the amounts of long-lived greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, it, in a sense,
represents society’s long-term commitment to global warming."

Please note Care2 News story at; 

Waters around the North Pole are absorbing carbon dioxide at such a rate that they will soon start dissolving the shells of living sea creatures. Carbon dioxide gas is ACID, and it affects our health as well, and not in a positive way... Breathing in acid is not a healthy thing to do.
