Venus: No Greenhouse Effect Harry Dale Huffman
Hi All,
This may be a bit more of late news, but it is news all the same..

Venus: No Greenhouse Effect
The Earth and Man: Setting the Stage blog

Harry Dale Huffman
Independent research physical scientist,

" I was able recently to post an answer on to a question about the greenhouse effect on Venus,
an update to which I give here:

Surprisingly to most, there is no greenhouse effect at all, and you can prove it for yourself.

From the
temperature and pressure profiles for the Venusian atmosphere,
you can confirm that, at the altitude where the pressure = 1000 millibars, which is the sea level pressure of Earth,
the temperature of the Venusian atmosphere is 66ºC = 339K.

" Earth is 93 million miles from the Sun, on average, while Venus is only 67.25 million.
Since the intensity of the Sun's radiation decreases with distance from it as 1 over r-squared,
Venus receives (93/67.25) squared, or 1.91 times the power per unit area that Earth receives, on average.

" In particular, the averaged temperature at 1000 millibars on Earth is about 15ºC = 288K, so
the corresponding temperature on Venus, WITHOUT ANY GREENHOUSE EFFECT, should be 1.176 times that, or 339K.
But this is just 66ºC, the temperature we actually find there from the temperature and pressure profiles for Venus.

" So there is no greenhouse effect. You have just proved that climate science is utterly wrong to think otherwise.
This is the scandal that so many "experts" in climate science, and all the scientific authorities, will not face.
