Stratospheric Cooling

Last autumn I wrote a post on the Navitron forum about a reason for cooling of the stratosphere with increased carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. I later posted a reference to it in a comment on Kaitlin Alexander's blog (Climate Sight) which lead to further discussion which showed that what I described is only one of the mechanisms which tends to cause stratospheric cooling. In particular, Martin Vermeer's comment explains the other, perhaps the main, mechanism well.

Nevertheless, I'm sufficiently smug about my own explanation that I'm going to put a slightly-edited copy here.
