D-O events say otherwise. 6 to 8C rises in a matter of a few decades.
But only in very localized areas.
I can't believe you just argued against the ocean sequestering and releasing CO2 as a reinforcing agent to climate.
But I didn't. Try reading what I actually write.
There are _two_ factors in play here, the ocean temperatures and the increasing CO2 levels. You're only taking the first into account, so you get it wrong. I take both into account, so I get it right.
If you keep pumping out CO2 and the oceans cool, the oceans absorb CO2 a little more CO2, but the CO2 levels still keep climbing, because the CO2 emissions far exceed the additional sucking-it-up factor that comes from from cooling.
And again, you're inconsistent with your stories of the effects of CO2. When it comes to warming from additional CO2, you say it's insignificant. When it comes to cooling from less CO2, you say the effect is massive. Pick one, you can't keep having it both ways.
