What do you mean? Do you mean asphalt is heating it up through tires? What if I leave car on grass - it still gets hotter than outside.

comment Why must phonon-phonon interaction be anharmonic?
@CountIblis I can't quite understand why if I defined phonons as harmonic linear combinations, then the interactions woudn't happen. I'd greatly appreciate some clues. Thanks :)

@CountIblis Thanks for the answer. Could you elaborate a little bit about defining interactions as linear combinations? What does that imply? Also if you could elaborate your second sentence a little bit. What happens when I diagonalize the matrix? Isn't that ok?
