because, it seems, it is exactly analogous
to teh speed of sound, as I mentioned
in changing the header

THUS:
clouds redistribute the light, all according
to the least-time principle (brachistochrone problem
of Liebniz et al, and a particular generalization,
with its own prefix), but also in accord
with the most basic part of "conduction" in the broadest sense
of electromagnetic radiation,
where one considers the specific density & specific heat
of every object in Universe

without water, the surface would get hotter & colder diurnally,
just like Moon extremes (Al Gore's "dark side,"
Apollonauts dayside).

also, clouds waveguide an enormous amount of energy,
viz blazing sunsights & sunclipses (-set and -rise), especially
mod the arctic circles. I'd suppose that
this is "even more so" with infrared, but
I have forgotten whether water vapor's huge absorption spectrum
includes much of that.
