A building with no windows but with CO2…
If now the heat resistance (CO2) of the walls is instantaneously increased, at first the outer surface temperature drops and the inner surface temperature rises, while the interior temperature is still unchanged. In this situation less heat escapes from the building than is released by the indoor heating system. The imbalance leads to a slow ascent of the interior temperature that continues until the outer surface temperature returns to its original value.

The key importance of activation energy

Completely right.
The Earth doesn’t care from where a CO2 molecule originates. All that matters is how long it takes to reach equilibrium again if the amount exchanged between the biosphere and the atmosphere each year increases by a small amount. Left to itself the Earth would return to an equilibrium concentration say after a massive volcanic eruption. All that would happen is that vegetation and plancton would bloom in the medium term to absorb any small excess. The same is true of man made CO2 (provided we don’t tarmac over the planet).

If we merely double CO2 concentrations, then the added CO2 will mix within the existing atmosphere. It does not seem like this added amount can make much of a difference in the point in the upper atmosphere where newly radiated infrared energy can escape? If this band did grow in height, then the argument stated would make sense? Does the air pressure at sea level change?

Increasing the collision frequency

Some common examples which you may need for other parts of your syllabus include:

I don’t understand your reasoning regarding atmospheric pressure. Can you explain? The partial pressure of CO2 has gone up because we have emitted more, but it is such a small percentage of atmosphere that its effect upon atmospheric pressure is negligible compared to fluctuations in lapse rate and weather.

(Because of conversation depth, replying to myself)
@ConcernedCitizen: That’s precisely the point, as Clive explained. The broad absorption/emission band for CO2 at 667 per cm aligns almost perfectly with the main emissions for a blackbody in the range of Earth’s surface temperature. Not only does Earth not produce much in the absorption/emission regions for N2 and O2, but the incoming radiation from Sun is much higher in frequency and, so, CO2/H2O/CH4/O3 are transparent to it. Not so for the outgoing. And, also as Clive described, the only part of the atmosphere that radiates and dumps energy is the top.

That seems a fairly straightforward explanation until you look at the numbers!
