The way the Earth does this is almost entirely through infrared (or "heat") radiation, which is being continuously emitted by the Earth to outer space.

This is because it is widely believed that weather processes will amplify the relatively small amount of CO2-only warming. So let's review the basic concepts involved in global warming. Carbon dioxide is a greenhouse gas, which means it tends to warm the lower atmosphere. Mankind is putting more and more if it into the atmosphere from combustion of fossil fuels, at a rate of 1 molecule of CO 2 per 100,000 molecules of air every five years. This causes a slight change in the (alleged) radiative energy balance at the top of the atmosphere.
