So what is the 'output' of the sun relative the heat/IR we receive on Earth? I guess it might be difficult to answer that one but it would be interesting to know the relation between those two. If we talk about photons the only way they 'annihilate' is through interactions, if we talk about waves we have quenching and reinforcing. And the waves from the sun are polychromatic, of a lot of different wavelengths. So how do the transfer of heat works, and if some get lost, to what does it lose?
