Could we ever pull enough carbon out of the atmosphere to stop climate change?

Some of the CO2 we've put into the atmosphere has been absorbed by the oceans. If we are able to remove CO2 from the atmosphere, and do so, will the oceans release excess CO2?

If the oceans do release their excess CO2, it will increase the amount of CO2 we need to remove from the atmosphere. Will it also help raise the ocean's pH?

Its not the carbon in the air that warms the sea surface temperature. It's the long chain carbon in the water (Turbidity) and the Heat in the water in streams going into the estuaries, wetlands and coastal waters. This leads to the creation of Anoxic zones. Heterotrophic bacteria decomposing the dirty warm water take oxygen out and respire carbon dioxide. Water holds a thousand times more Heat than Air. So lets think with Common sense in Science.
