What humans can do to make contribution to influence global climate is to change ratios of greenhouse gas, aerosol (fine particulate matter) and cloud in the atmosphere. Greenhouse gas and aerosol will impact the amounts of inward solar radiation and outward infrared (thermal) radiation—part of Earth energy balance, which means global climate system can be interfered by controlling proportion and features of greenhouse gas and aerosol.
