So far am I from making fun of it that I am obtuse enough to believe that
this carries the germ of an experiment
which would provide wonderful insights to school kids.

I expect the illustrious authors are making the point ( well-taken?)
that this effect - if true - has very
little to do with the mechanism by which actual green houses maintain
a warmer than ambient environment
but only the consequential results of greenhouse-like effects?

I am just guessing of course - but if this is the case, the paper would
surely provide valuable input
at the junior high level, would it not?
