well distributed greenhouse gasses, it could be tied to CO2.
For a given geographic location the intensity of incoming radiation is radically affected by day and night.
I have a theory, that in sunlight conditions, nitrogen is excited, and passes a quantum vibrational mode
to almost all of the CO2. (Yes it is a contact transfer).
while the quantum excited cycle of CO2 is short in Human time, it is long in quantum time,
between 20 and 50 ms. While the molecule is spontaneously decaying, it cannot absorb
the 14 um ground emissions.
(Basically I am saying that CO2 in the daytime stays in a state of population inversion.)
This would explain why CO2 does what we think it should at night, but not in the daytime.

.04 °C per decade. So the model is not prediction is not within 1% of the observed temperature.
What is climate change? | Climate Change Education | Climate Change | Washington State Department of Ecology
The scientific opinion on climate change is that the Earth's climate system is unequivocally warming, and that it is extremely likely (at least 95% probability) that humans are causing most of it through activities that increase concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, such as deforestation and burning fossil fuels. In addition, it is likely that some potential further greenhouse gas warming has been offset by increased aerosols. This scientific consensus is expressed in synthesis reports, by scientific bodies of national or international standing, and by surveys of opinion among climate scientists. Individual scientists, universities, and laboratories contribute to the overall scientific opinion via their peer-reviewed publications, and the areas of collective agreement and relative certainty are summarised in these high level reports and surveys.
Just for starters.
