Ode to Misinterpretations of the Second Law

October 21st, 2014 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

Inspired by a couple comments from my solar eclipse post.

He said an object that was cold
Could not make something warm still warmer
So he donned his coat, went out the door
To prove the truth of former.

“See?” he said, “the sky is cold”
“and so it cannot warm”
Then back inside he merrily went,
Removing the cold coat he’d worn.
