Saying that grass is green because of chlorophyll has even less explanatory power than saying that Kermit is green because of Miss Piggy.

"Saying that grass is green because of chlorophyll has even less explanatory power than saying that Kermit is green because of Miss Piggy."

I wouldn't say "less". Unlike Miss Piggy, the green color of grass does originate in chlorophyll. You can obviously go deeper into why chlorophyll is green, I suppose.

Green is waste light. Grass eats the red light and poops the green light.
