If you burn a lump of coal, the greenhouse effect from the carbon dioxide released from burning that coal will, over its lifetime in the atmosphere, heat the Earth about 100,000 times more than the thermal energy released from burning that coal. This warming will occur over the coming millennia (up to ~300,000 years). One way to imagine this ratio of 1:100,000 (direct warming to radiative forcing) for GHG is to imagine that you experienced one split-second of life—and then had to watch it echo around Earth for another 100,000 split-seconds (here: five minutes).
