    (I guess the question is the same one as below, `how many joules does it take to raise the temperature of the atmosphere by 2 degrees Celsius.) Remember specific heat capacity tells you the number of joules needed to heat up one kilogram of a substance by 1 degree Celsius. Can you use this to calculate how many joules you'd need, given the mass of the atmosphere and how many degrees you're trying to raise the temperature?
