Carbon dioxide absorbs infrared light, as I understand it. Does that mean that carbon dioxide also retains more heat? Because it absorbs more energy? [non visible light which I guess is still energy}. What other gases absorb infrared. Is there a homemade tool that would allow me to see which gases absorb infrared? Where does infrared energy go?
