      We permeate the atmosphere with energy frequencies, aka: warmth, from our wireless tools and toys which puts a hot water bottle under the gas comforter we also create. Its impact would be higher at night by restricting cooling just a smidge to give the sun’s warming a smidge head start when it takes its turn at the atmosphere…a smidge that compounds of course.
