Sam,

There's a lot of hot air being expended on this topic.

Impossible to say if bringing Al Gore to a lecture demonstration =20
would increase or decrease the total entropy since the reflectivity =20
would seem to depend directly on the color of your state. This is =20
another one of those counter-intuitive demonstrations; one where you =20
can never quite remember if it works the obvious way that you think =20
it should, or if the result is the opposite because of the carefully =20
contrived setup. But if you assume a spherical Al Gore, you'll see a =20=

warmer response from the red states.

Paul
