How do you explain asphalt on a sunny afternoon and after sunset?

As I’ve already pointed out, visible light creates heat via Energy of Collision, a very ineffective method for producing heat, ergo the EasyBake Oven won’t work with modern Florescent and LED bulbs. They make far more visible light but far less IR. The visible light is unable to cook alone, even though there is some IR being created by these modern bulbs, because the way visible light photons makes heat is inefficient due to the fact they cannot change the quantum vibrational state of the atoms that absorb the visible light..

As to different color roofs, when did this become a discussion about the absorption spectra of black bodies and white bodies?

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
