Soot and sulfate work differently. Soot absorbs the energy and
re-radiates it. ("black body")

Sulfate reflects it. When something is perfectly reflected it absorbs
double the energy? Momentum maybe, but the energy departs back into
space. Energy is a scalar amount, not a vector.

If you shine a bathroom heat lamp onto a mirror, are you saying that
the back of the mirror gets HOTTER than the guy standing next to the
heat lamp?
