Obviously the earth takes in a large amount of solar photonic energy every day. Not so obviously it radiates a nearly equally large amount back into space every day. The mission of the ERBE project was to characterize the outgoing radiation. AlGore claims that as CO2 content of the air increases re-radiation goes down. But this paper by Prof Richard Lindzen of MIT doesn't find AlGore's claim to be compelling. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2009/07/23/new-paper-from-lindzen/
