I do not believe that most of the energy comes from the piston. It’s an adiabatic process. You are taking the kinetic energy from a large volume of gas and reducing the volume. The energy remains constant, but since the volume is lower the temperature jumps higher. At least, that’s how I remember it. I may remember wrong.

The ignition temperature of cotton is about 400 degrees C:P

Just to let you know, this video is being used by climate "skeptics" to suggest that atmospheric pressure is responsible for earth's surface temperature rather than the greenhouse effect. I wonder if you might comment on this for people's edification. Thx!
