"Income and Outgo of Heat from the Earth, and the Dependence of Its Temperature Thereon."

A presentation by Abbot, Charles G., and F.E. Fowle, Jr. Annals of the Astrophysical Observatory (Smithsonian Institution, Washington DC) 2: 159-176. 

"The most likely way the climate could be influenced by either natural or artificial means seems to be through a trigger mechanism that ultimately changes the radiation balance."

Abraham Oort.  "The Energy Cycle of the Earth," Scientific American. 

September 1970
" The molecule of carbon dioxide has strong absorption bonds, particularly in the infrared region of the spectrum at wavelengths of from 12 to 18 microns. This is the spectral region where most of the thermal energy radiating from earth to space is concentrated. By increasing the absorption of this radiation ... carbon dioxide reduces the amount of heat energy lost by earth to outer space."

Fred S. Singer, "Human Energy Production as a process in the biosphere," Scientific American

September 1970.
