Yes, but CO2 is chosen as the villain as it is easy to tax energy supplies, but hard to tax an ocean.
Thermal infrared image of the Western Hemisphere from GOES.Clouds emit thermal infrared (heat) radiation in proportion to their temperature, which is related to altitude. This image shows the Western Hemisphere in the thermal infrared. Warm ocean and land surface areas are white and light gray; cool, low-level clouds are medium gray; and cold, high-altitude clouds are dark gray and black. (NASA image courtesy GOES Project Science.)
