Would have thought you would know this...but it stopped surprising me a long time ago how much you don't know...IR strikes opaque materials causing the molecules in the solid object to vibrate causing it to warm up....IR energy absorbed by the few microns of sea water that it can penetrate is carried off via convection through the normal evaporative process...Only SW heats the oceans crick...IR simply can't get the job done.You have answered NONE of them.You have already been given the answer to all those...the fact that you don't like them because they are in opposition to your glassy eyed chanting cult's dogma is irrelevant.Yo, dipshit, when did I ever argue that point? Umm... never. I argued the five points up above. The ones you just ignored. Try again fool.
1) How does IR heat opaque materials?
2) Explain how the bulk of IR energy absorbed by water is lost to the air (as you claim) when water is 24 times as thermally conductive and has more than 4 times the specific heat capacity and 3,150 times the volumetric heat capacity as air.
