A Full Moon’s Irradiance is 1/6th that of CO2 in W/M^2

According to MODTRAN, changing CO2 from pre-industrial CO2 of 280 ppm to 400 ppm alters the downward IR Radiation by 0.6 W/M^2 of 13 to 18-micron LWIR. (Note Settings should be “looking up” and change CO2 from 280 to 400) (Source)

A Full Moon, on the other hand, bathes the earth with 6.8mWM^2 of reflected and 89m WM^2 of thermal radiation, or about 1/6th the radiation provided by CO2, and of much higher energy wavelengths. (Source)

Do you honestly believe that 6x the energy from a Full Moon could cause catastrophic climate change? If you believe in man-made climate change than you do.
