I was reading your February 2011 post on CO2 doubling. As a person who has worked with CO2 lasers for years I am confused by almost all of the analysis I read. As you point out, CO2 absorbs most of its energy in the 15 micron band. My experience tells me that it reradiates the energy between 9 and 10 microns which is in the middle of the earths transparent “zone” That would tend to make me believe that the reradiated energy would remove itself rather than warm. Where am i wrong here.

Yeah that seems about right.
What if we can start clawing greenhouse gases back?
Hello dear hope you are fine i want to know life of atmospheric carbon dioxide.Answer or share some literature related life of atmospheric carbon dioxide
