Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Rising CO2 plus rising SO2 cannot be good for ocean acidification.

Rising SO2? Given general trends, why would there be an increase?

There's an acidification concern here, not because of a delay in ongoing reductions of SO2, but because of reduced motivations to reduce CO2.

And that poses a problem, because it is hard to argue to people that they shouldn't do X because it will make Y less painful, and we want the pain caused by Y to make them do Z.

Here, X = SO2 cooling, Y = CO2 increase, Z = CO2 emission reduction.
