the annual co2 cycle posted to wuwt

The annual CO2 change: Co2 absorbed in the ocean removes the full CO2 molecule and so will not change O2 levels (see link) plant growth requires CO2 but on a yearly basis that which is absorbed is not emitted until decomposition – a slow process hence growth/decomposition does not create a yearly cycle. The balance between plant photo synthesis and respiration however occur according to the dark/light ratio. In NH summer is light so more co2 converted to O2 Winter is dark so more O2 converted to CO2 This seems to me to be the only process that is rapid enough to cause the annual co2 cycle.

The following post shows that CO2 and O2 levels are in antiphase and synchronised to the light dark cycle
