This has been understood by real scientists (as compared to
climate modelers) since about 1830 when William Henry
documented the science known as

The area of ocean surface above 25.6º C has been slowly
increasing since about 1918. That is the reason net CO2
concentration has been slowly increasing.
And by the way, that
increasing CO2 trend has brought us many decades of
increasing greening of the earth, increasing crop yields, etc.
Above 25.6º C
(the tropics) ocean surface emits CO2.
Below 25.6º C
