ADIABATIC THEORY OF THE ATMOSPHERE GREENHOUSE EFFECT.

The adiabatic theory  of the greenhouse effect is discussed, according to
which the mean temperature of the dense convicting planetary troposphere
behaves according to the adiabatic low of distribution and is ruled by the
intensity of the solar radiation, being subject to stabilizing role of the
strong negative feedback through planet albedo. The additional heat
emission in troposphere due to absorption of the heat radiation by carbon
dioxide, like the influence of atmospheric moisture condensation, leads to
the decrease in surface planet temperatures and temperature gradients in
the troposphere. It is shown that the double increase in carbon dioxide in
the earth's atmosphere does not change practically mean surface
temperatures and does not influence the greenhouse effect at the planet.
The theory was checked on the basis of the model of the standard Earth
atmosphere and temperature distribution in the Venus troposphere.
