    Here is an interesting paper by Dr. Anderson about a new theory on the role of wind:

    Here is a free link that reviews the same topic:

    This link is a paper from Nature providing an overview of how CO2 changes:

    This link is from 2007, about recent changes in upwelling off the coast of Africa:

    Bottom line: The oceans are the only source of CO2 large enough to naturally
    shift atmospheric CO2 concentrations by the amounts recorded during glaciations/de-glaciations. Changes in CO2 caused between 15 to 30% of the temperature change during ice age glaciations/de-glaciations. The initiator and majority of the change was a shift in earths orbit.
