Blanket does not warm an object underneath it. So why would air warm surface?

If you put a cup on the ground with no blanket on it. If you put another cup on the ground with blanket on it. Both cups will end up with the same temperature. So blanket does not change temperature of cup. So why would air change temperature of cup?

Both cups wouldn't be the same temperature. The blanket is a barrier/insulation. It's R rating would need to be considered. Same thing as any home a person lives in.

They will both reach the same temperature, James. Blankets are not a source of energy. R rating is irrelevant.

You seem to have forgotten that the Sun both rises and sets. The question really had no value. R rating is relevant. It would slow both heating and cooling. A thermal blanket would significantly restrict something underneath it to warm or slow it's ability to cool.

A constant temperature was assumed. Both cups will reach the same temperature. You also seem to forget that blankets have a low R value.

James, the important question is ... if you wrap a cup of coffee in a blanket, when does the coffee's temperature increase? When do you get "Coffee Warming"?

The follow-on question becomes: How is the "Coffee Warming" accelerated if CO2 is added?


I don't think i can [define it]. I just kind of get a feel for the phrase. - keepit

A Spaghetti strainer with the faucet running, retains water- tmiddles

Clouds don't trap heat. Clouds block cold. - Spongy Iris

Printing dollars to pay debt doesn't increase the number of dollars. - keepit

If Venus were a black body it would have a much much lower temperature than what we found there.- tmiddles

Ah the "Valid Data" myth of ITN/IBD. - tmiddles

Ceist - I couldn't agree with you more. But when money and religion are involved, and there are people who value them above all else, then the lies begin. - trafn

You are completely misunderstanding their use of the word "accumulation"! - Climate Scientist.

The Stefan-Boltzman equation doesn't come up with the correct temperature if greenhouse gases are not considered - Hank

:*sigh* Not the "raw data" crap. - Leafsdude

IB STILL hasn't explained what Planck's Law means. Just more hand waving that it applies to everything and more asserting that the greenhouse effect 'violates' it.- Ceist
