Color domination in heat absorption?

Red absorbs all but the red wavelengths, and so forth for other colors//. Couldn't understand clearly. !!! Sorry for my less English.

light is a part of the electromagnetic energy spectrum emitted from the sun. It contains many wavelengths including what our eyes are sensitive to known as visible light. Various things scatter, absorb or reflect these waves (I am deliberately avoiding discussing photons or light as a particle). Things that scatter or absorb the light can range from molecules to the planet surface. These things that interact with the radiated light can absorb, scatter or reflect the light. Your eyes detect what is reflected. Light that is absorbed will convert to thermal energy or the heat that maks the air less dense. If the light that strikes an object has only a few wavelengths or colors, then these are the only colors available to see. So if there is an object we perceive as yellow come to our eyes, everything that makes yellow is reflected while any other colors are scattered or absorbed. If only green light hits that object, just the portion of that light that makes yellow will reflect to your eye. Or if blue light strikes a red object, you will not see it as the red absorbs all the blue light. Sunlight is all colors so we see what objects reflect from the sun, but when you restrict the color of the light, some things become invisible to us... like infrared light that we use soecial cameras to see but can not se it with our eyes.

Thank you. I learned more here.

Dark colors aborb heat. Light colors reflect.
