Abstract The present mechanism of radiant energy production in the atmosphere is considered and it is shown that it is not compatible with accepted principles of physics. An alternative mechanism whereby the temperature of the atmosphere and surface of the Earth is regulated by a chemical reaction in the stratosphere is described. It is shown that this mechanism can account for the changes in climate which occurred during the past ten thousand years. The effect on this mechanism of changes in the composition of atmospheric gases, including changes resulting from human activities, is described and the consequences of the changes recorded.
