What is a "black body" and does earth qualify as one?
The dew point of air is important because it determines the lowest possible air temperature.
Heat can be transferred by conduction, convection and radiation.  The first two are more important for determining air temperatures than is radiation.
Humans generate heat through various activities.  These activities are more likely to increase temperatures than is CO2.
