Have you done _any_ research or any calculations?
If so, then present the numbers. It would help explain AGW to deniers.
If you don't have any numbers then answer this question:
How many scientists do you know that don't rely on applied math before they make conclusions?

It's certainly measurable which is proven by the chart. It just isn't nearly as much as the reradiated IR trapped by the CO2.
