Earth’s Energy Balance
This figure appears in chapter 33 of the Climate Change Impacts in the United States: The Third National Climate Assessment report.
This figure summarizes results of measurements taken from satellites of the amount of energy coming in to and going out of Earth’s climate system. It demonstrates that our scientific understanding of how the greenhouse effect operates, is, in fact, accurate, based on real world measurements.
