...new NASA measurements prove that carbon dioxide acts as a coolant in Earth's atmosphere.

Indeed. Alarmists are obsessed with CO2 blocking longwave radiation from leaving the planet and ignore the fact that the same CO2 is now blocking longwave solar radiation from coming in! In other words this knife cuts both ways.

To add insult to injury they are assuming that the radiation going out is greater than the solar radiation coming in and that this is the cause of global warming! This they assume without data, without experiment and without proof.
