{{#if:Lecture 5 starts with more discussion of the variability observed in the ice age-temperate cycles. In particular, the plausible role of the ocean in absorbing carbon dioxide from and releasing carbon dioxide to the atmosphere is discussed. The carbon cycle and the oceanic and terrestrial sources and sinks are highlighted. The greenhouse effect of water and carbon dioxide holding heat near the Earth's surface is introduced. Then using the conservation principle, introduced earlier, the radiative balance of the Earth is investigated.|== Lecture Summary == Lecture 5 starts with more discussion of the variability observed in the ice age-temperate cycles.
