“How can carbon capture reduce the amount of radiation absorbed from the sun?”

Greenhouse gases are responsible for the increase the increase of the heat trapped in the atmosphere. But with carbon capture, there will be less greenhouse gases and therefore less radiative forcing. This is How Carbon Capture Can Reduce Radiative Forcing.

“Are there greenhouse gases besides CO2?”

When greenhouse gases are discussed many people only think of CO2. However, greenhouse gases are any gas that traps heat in the atmosphere, therefore there are many more Greenhouse Gases Beyond CO2.

“How is radiative forcing causing climate change?”

Radiative forcing is the primary driver of Earth’s climate. And since the Earth is trapping more heat, its radiative forcing is increasing and making temperatures hotter. This is  How Radiative Forcing is Causing Climate Change.

“What is the primary influence on Earth’s climate?”

The Earth receives energy from the sun and then radiates some of it out into space. The difference from this is the Radiative Forcing and is the energy that is received by the Earth. This is the primary influence on the Earth’s climate
