I should stop having my suit dry cleaned, it seems to kill people.
You can lead a moron to knowledge but you cannot make him think.
I should probably buy more bullets.
The vast majority of cars have laminated windshields which block most UVB and a good bit of UVA (but not all of either one). I would assume our Titan is such a windshield, but I have no way of knowing 100%. I can say that living in Texas and going on many several hour rides, I have never got a sunburn with the windows up. So I know that something is protecting us from at least the UVB rays.
The old one probably blocked a lot of the UV. So does the new one.
The thing is, UV is not what is making it hot in your car. Heat comes from IR and Visible Light (heat lamps are red, not purple).
Stolen from Wiki entry for Infrared: Bright sunlight provides an irradiance of just over 1 kilowatt per square meter at sea level. Of this energy, 527 watts is infrared radiation, 445 watts is visible light, and 32 watts is ultraviolet radiation.
So you can see that there isn't much energy in ultraviolet range. (you need energy to make heat)
All new cars and trucks have a UV protection built into the windshield, the sideglass does as well, all aftermarket replacements should be built to Nissan specs, although Nissan doesn't make its own glass they get it from a supplier.
