The energy from the sun must be leaving the earth at the same rate it is being absorbed by the earth, or the energy would build until the planet vaporized. So how is it exiting?
Sunlight is absorbed by the earth and mostly turned into heat, but I wouldn’t think heat could leave the planet as the vacuum of space should act as an insulator. How is all the energy escaping, and in what form?
