The problem is: we need to reduce the number of heat-trapping molecules in the air, because that's what is raising our average temperatures. Why is this a problem? I mean, if CO2 is converting light into heat and it is increasing in the atmosphere, won't that make the temperature go up? The short answer is no.That would be a valid analysis IF AND ONLY IF the atmosphere was primarily warmed by atoms and molecules in the atmosphere converting the energy in sunlight into heat energy as does carbon dioxide.
Please do. In interests of fairness might be worth reading full article if it is available; perhaps the summary was just very misrepresentative (although I very much doubt it). If you do have a link for full article I will have a look through it as well.
