CO2 bubbling through Methanol and Boric Acid solution

Methanol with boric acid dissolved in it provides a lovely green flame when its vapors are ignited.  Wanted to push the vapors to a remote location and considered using CO2 as the transport gas as I did not want to have any likelihood of combustion within the piping (flammable mixture).  Wanted to bubble CO2 through the methanol/boric acid solution to have the CO2 carry the vapors to a remote location.  Is there any adverse reaction that might occur by bubbling CO2 through the methanol and boric acid solution?
