Speed of sound = speed of heat
The heat which arrives from the Sun is in the form of Infra red radiation (another wavelentgth of electomagnetic wave). (Same speed as light).
Feel free to pick all you like, my friend. I was being deliberately sloppy in an attempt to seem more approachable. I shall avoid it in future. :-)But I could nitpick back and say that em radiation is not heat (i.e. internal energy) at all but electric and magnetic energy (or even the dreaded photons). Heat is a term which is used very sloppily.
