The test that exonerates CO2

The one planetary example that is usually given for the greenhouse effect is Venus. As if Venus once was a green, lush thriving world and some evil force has increased CO2 so it became the hellhole it is. The truth is that the heating effect on Venus is a result of its superdense atmosphere. Thats not even similar to the stuff we breathe and I am not talking about composition. An atmosphere composed of nitrogen and oxygen but as dense and as close to the Sun as Venus would likely be as hot as the Venusian CO2 atmosphere is. It’s the Sun – stupid.
