Natural energy transfer is radiation entering the earth's atmosphere; some is absorbed and the remainder is reflected back into space. Global warming effect is a result of CO2 and other gases forming a layer around the earth that slows down the remainder radiation from being reflected back into space. As the population increase with activities that increase the atmospheric concentration of these gases, the atmosphere and the ocean will continue to rise, thus the overall global temperature will rise.
