I'm not sure about the CO2 affecting them, but my initial reaction is that, since they don't breath through gills, it won't hurt them. CO2 + H2O does produce carbonic acid though, which is why the pH lowers. This isn't going to be bad unless you manage to get your pH well below safe (~3, which I'm not sure is possible actually!). The lowest I've ever accidentally gotten mine is 6.2.
Also pyro, I don't know about Jersey, but in Indiana it is illegal to buy and sell native species (i.e. red ear sliders). The DNR is cracking down pretty hard because people collect them, deplete the natural population, and then sell them. This is something you might want to double check.
