No contradictions there. An insulator is a barrier to conductive and convective heat transfer, but as long as it's transparent to photons, radiative heat doesn't even notice it. Spacecraft instruments that need low temperatures have steered radiators that are kept pointed at dark space.

If this is a service economy, why is the service so bad?
