Salby is arguing that atmospheric CO2 increase that we observe is a product of temperature increase, and not the other way around, meaning it is a product of natural variation.

As a chemist, I've been arguing this for years.
As the temperature of the oceans rise, the amount of dissolved CO2 they can retain decreases.
Decrease the temperature of the oceans, and they absorb CO2 from the atmosphere.
You can even see it in microcosm, as the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere fluctuates annually with the seasons:
