Scott's Antarctic Data Confirms Carbon Sequestration Increase

The nice thing about this particular proxy is that it isolated in time and space from the rest of the globe.  Thus we get pretty solid confirmation that the past two decades has seen a CO2 growing burst underway sufficient to establish magnitudes to some accuracy.

We thought as much, but the picture was also fuzzy and this is a bench mark that can be used safely to correct other data shifts.

It is also a serious reminder of the importance of the day to day science of simple data
collection that needs to be supported better and not forgotten.

Captain Scott's century-old collections suggest marine life is capturing more carbon
