Cool visualization. One quibble, the map projection makes it appear that the co2 in the arctic exceeds that of the northern temparate zones. I'd love to see the same model in a different projection.

It looks like that because that's the way it is (higher CO2 concentrations in the Arctic).
There are numerous references for it, clustered around the search term "400 ppm".
