An absurd 79 percent radiation is based upon an erroneous Stefan-Boltzmann constant

Does anything in nature suggest that the entire surface of the Earth is emitting 390 W/square meter from North Pole to Equator to South Pole? Do animals and people sense it? Yes, on hot asphalt in the summer time in the middle latitudes. Yes, on beach sand. But not on meadows, in forests, on oceans, in the mountains - most of Earth's surfaces.

These flow charts are a total farce of guess-work, but they show the absurdity of claiming 79% of the energy leaving the surface of the earth to be in the form of radiation. A white hot light bulb could not emit 79% of its energy as radiation without a vacuum environment.
