The purpose of this paper is to present a controversial and CO2 free explanation to global warming and to show that global warming means that large-scale thermal energy storage. Global warming is here explained by dissipation of heat from the global use of non-renewable energy sources (fossil fuels and nuclear power). Resulting net heat is thus released into the atmosphere. A minor part of this heat is emitted to space as outgoing longwave radiation while the remaining is heating the Earth. Some of this heat is accumulated as sensible, i.e., by heating air, ground, and water. The rest is also stored as latent heat, i.e., in the form of vapor in the air and in the melting of the large ice fields of the planet.
