solar radiation powers the climate system----> some solar radiation is reflected by the earth and the atmosphere
---> about half the solar radiation is abdorbed by the earth's surface and warms it
---> infrared radiation is emitted from the earths surface
---> some of the infrared radiation passes through the atmosphere but most is absorbed and re-emitted in all directions by greenhouse gas molecules and clouds, this warmd the earth's surface and lower atmosphere.
