The sun even has a warming and heating effect on the seas, taking them from cold to warm with the changing seasons
Well, we also have the best cooling technology money can buy, but it is winter so I am not trying to think cold thoughts. Today was really cold when I woke up and went for a ride on my bike. I was kind of dreading the cold sea plunge I took because I knew the water would be really cold this morning. But, the sun was shining and the natural climate control system of the sun kept me nice and warm while I sat in the cold sea. I think the sun is good at radiative heating and when it is out it warms your body just from it shining on you. It is truly amazing that an object which is 93 million miles away, the sun, can heat up objects to the point where they could fry an egg. We learned about that in this HVAC technology course we all took as it involved a lot of thermodynamic subjects. The sun uses radiative heating, just like a radiant heater would do in a home, to warm anything that is near it and visible. The sun doesn’t warm the other side of the planet because the rays don’t hit anything and just go on into the black space that surrounds the globe. The sun even has a warming and heating effect on the seas, taking them from cold to warm with the changing seasons. I have an old oil heater but I think I may change it for a radiant heater soon because I think they would warm me up faster after my cold sea dips.
