How does atmospheric CO2 heat up the ocean under a glacier?

I read some AGW porn on how the ocean under the Antarctic Thwaites Glacier the Doomsdsy Glacier eeeeekkkk! was warming and was gonna cause Obama's and Kerrys and Gore's beachfront properties to sink!

Can someone explain how adding 10, 20 or even 100ppm of CO2 to the atmosphere does that??

Please post the AGW report. This is called climate change

The property is not going to sink, the ocean water is rising, covering shorelines.

CO2 is not a problem, plants live on CO2. Plants in turn exhale O2, which we humans live on

CO2 is absorbed by the ocean and transfers the heat it held into the water thereby melting the ice.

CO2 doesn't transfer hear into the ocean worth a hill of beans, it is negligible!

There is an active VOLCANO right by the Thwaites glacier!

Volcanic activity under Thwaites Glacier contributes to melting
Posted on 12. June 2014 by Rolf Stange

Excerpt:


The Thwaites Glacier in West Antarctica has recently attracted considerable media attention, as scientists have predict it to collaps largely in the future. It is up to 4 kilometres thick and large enough to contribute with 1-2 metres to global sea level rise – a dramatic value. So far, warm sea water has been made responsible for glacier melting on the coast, but now there is evidence that a significant part of melting actually takes place at the glacier base, away from the coast. Thwaites Glacier is largely based well below sea level, as is the case for large parts of the West Antarctic ice shield, a fact that contributes to its lack of stability.

There is one for Pine Island Glacier too:

CO2 is a greenhouse gas, meaning it traps the sun's heat, warming the oceans. As their waters circulate the heat is spread around the globe, even under Antarctic sea ice. The nightmare scenario is that the sea ice will break up and free the land glaciers to rapidly slide into the sea, rising sea levels.

I have no idea how the concentration of CO2 plays into this but the ice is in balance so any minor change in global temperatures will have an effect.

Please show how CO2 puts a bunch of "heat" into the ocean waters.

CO2 doesn't trap anything, that is elementary school writing.

Volcanoes? Ridiculous! No, the obvious cause is CO2 from American SUVs.

There, covered that for you, Klimate Kultists.

That's fucking hilarious!!!
Molecules of carbon dioxide (CO2) can absorb energy from infrared (IR) radiation. This animation shows a molecule of CO2 absorbing an incoming infrared photon (yellow arrows). ... This ability to absorb and re-emit infrared energy is what makes CO2 an effective heat-trapping greenhouse gas.

What's the CO2 content in today's ocean?

Needless to say, we've answered all of Frank's questions many times.

Frank, you're a sad dishonest troll. Is your life really this empty, that you have to seek attention this way?

Yeah, same way you posted the lab work showing the temperature increase associated with increasing CO2 from 280 to 400ppm.

Never.

Ha ha, YOU must have skipped a course in rational thinking.

Your tiny unsourced chart is dead on arrival.

Try again.

What animation?

You seem unaware at how little of the IR window that CO2 absorbs in, and how little impact it has on the "Heat budget", CO2 is a trace gas with a tiny absorption range.

Around 94% of all the OUTGOING terrestrial IR goes right by CO2 into space, that is how little it absorbs.

Odd, they never respond with a numbet
