how big is the ocean inside the average greenhouse ?

As long as the economy keeps growing your pension fund is safe. What could possibly go wrong? I guess nobody ever heard of a Ponzi Scheme.
"Why care about CO2?"
to "oceans in a greenhouse"
my how the goalposts do change.
You obviously have a predetermined agenda.
Why not just be honest from the beginning?
your lack of comprehention is not my lack of honesty.
i will assign your response to the "having a bad day" catagory
It might help if you avoided talking crap. What the hell is your - ostensibly - imbecile question about oceans in a greenhouse supposed to mean?
If you talk in riddles you must expect some criticism.
From "field" - imitating - studies at the U of Minn, the effects of extra CO2 on plants not protected and fertilized and so forth in a greenhouse start to become complicated at much lower levels than 1000 ppm. https://www.sciencenews.org/article/rising-co2-levels-might-not-be-good-plants-we-thought
I think RainbowSingularity is drawing attention to the difference between a closed system and an open system. In an open system the volume of atmosphere and ocean is infinite - any CO2 added to an open system will (by definition) be infinitely diluted.
And gravity has no effect on CO2 concentration?
However in defense of the proposition of infinite dilution, it does in fact happen, but it is a local phenomenon at the center of antarctica.
closed systems with manually managed precipitation & hydration that can create generic hermitic seals to ensure forced Co2 levels without altering the entire greenhouse structure and supply is a fools game.
pretending that plants act the same in the wild as they do inside a greenhouse for Co2 processing while ignoring the atmospheric changes that destroy the entire planet/greenhouse is rediculous and childish logic.
it is no different to a child claiming who the best plastic superhero is then throwing the one they dont like into a fire and saying "look see it isnt a super hero because it burns"
This may be of interest;
Nope. Burning coal to make CO2 into gasoline results in MORE CO2 in the atmosphere.
More of Bangladesh disappears. All residents have to leave Tuvalu.
That was my first impression also, but they are not talking about coal but harvesting CO2 from the air. IOW, it is a scrubbing process.
Trees and plants use airborne CO2 for energy and convert CO2 into oxygen in the process. Perhaps they have found a way to duplicate or replace the photosynthesis process.
Unlikely, in the extreme.
The guy (Brian McNoldy) whose measurements of sea levels nearby produced this graph: https://media.wired.com/photos/593280cc26780e6c04d2c4b3/master/w_700,c_limit/tide_data_Feb16.png
thinks that a 2 meter rise in the sea level at Miami, Florida is more likely than not within 50 years. That's in the center of his prediction range.
Note that the peak inundation increases are multiples of the average sea level increases - the storm surges and highest tides increase faster and more than the average level. So increases can make big problems far more rapidly than the less alarming slow creep of average levels suggests. If your hotel lobby floods a foot deep four times a year, and the septic system backs up into the street, it's not that meaningful to note that it isn't under water most of the time.

Yes. A process that takes energy. That energy will come from coal and natural gas in the US, because that's where most of our energy comes from.
They use LIGHT for energy, not CO2. Basic thermodynamics prevents CO2 from being used as a fuel.
Well, Mr Pruit is going to roll back EPA regulations on water pollution and car exhaust pollution.
Has the US gone completely mad?
Nope, it's just being used to profit a small group of wealthy investors.
Yes I can see that. Actually this is basically an expansion of the Halliburton Loophole.
But at what cost to society? IMO, this is an unconscionable act.
