Short Wave Radiation enters the atmosphere and travels through Non-Carbon Gases and Carbon Gases. Long Radiation can travel through Non-Carbon Gases. Long Wave Radiation is absorbed by Carbon Gases. Long Wave Radiation is absorbed by Carbon Gases. The Carbon Gases then emit Heat.

“ Climate change is occurring as indicated by analysis of the temperature and observation of the environment.” D E B A T E T H E Skeptic Proponent “ Climate change is not occurring because there is no indication of temperature or environmental changes.” “ Climate change is not occurring because local areas show contradictory temperatures. ” “ Climate change is occurring as indicated by analysis of global temperatures, not local temperatures.” “ Climate change is occurring, but it is caused naturally by a temperature cycle.” “ Climate change is occurring faster than a temperature cycle would indicate.”
