As pointed out in the article posted by Charlie, there is a point that I neglected to make: even if there were no organizing surface activity, the IR output of the surface and atmosphere of Earth would represent more entropy than the incoming solar visible and UV light, simply by virtue of the increased number of photons of lower energy being put into deep space (i.e., the author's "2nd reservoir").
