Environmental cooling using Black body (thought expt.)

An ultra black surface could be backed with water-filled tubules that connect to a reservoir. A battery could be charged with a solar panel that runs a circulation pump. During the night the heat could be re-radiated back into space. Low maintenance. Could it work?
If we could dump a load of heat back into space it may make a contribution to slowing global warming. Just a thought.
