Not really, to fill the pool with pee you would have to start with an empty pool. The oceans are the pool in our case and no amount of lifeform pee will be more then a drop in the bucket. In the case of CO2 there is a much bigger natural supply of the "pee", our "pee" is almost insignificant. You have to believe that the planet doesn't have the ability as a buffered system to adapt to a small change. That is was sitting right on the edge of its limits and then humans came along. I feel it's been through a lot worse and is capable of balancing itself.
