Wow. Totally misread that question. No radiant energy being reflected back, or reapplied, net temperature decrease. The problem is now a matter of radient spectra transmitted through the container only. If there were light: That depends entirely on the spectrum of light. O2 has a different absorbtion spectra of light than CO2, so this may be a trick question. If you are talking about natural sunlight and otherwise normal conditions with little UV, the higher CO2 concentration sample will absorb slightly more energy, thus be warmer, unless there is a proportional cooling mechanism like an endothermic reaction that is sped up by the increase in CO2 concentration.
