Though the end result is the same - there is no more energy in the CO2 bands for increasing CO2 to effect.But O2 does NOT absorb all of the UV which is why you have to wear suntan lotion and wear UV resistant sunglasses. 11-01-2019 18:54 Tai Hai Chen★★★★☆(1085) Wake wrote:Tai Hai Chen wrote:temperature by 1 C when there are only 2% of IR left after the first 10 ppm CO2?You numbers are at least an order of magnitude off.

It's only 2% of incoming UV. Not that much.
