Is the heat we feel from the carbon dioxide due to the vibration of the molecule or infrared photons being absorbed and then re-emitted later? Or a combination of both events?
...This separation of charge allows it to interact with the oscillating electric field of photons. ...
carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas because it absorbs strongly in the infrared region of the electromagnetic spectrum, but is transparent to visible light.
