The Planet Venus has a atmoshpere of 90x atm that of earth and we know the
effects, Mars with a similar atmosphere yet 1/90th atm that of earth has no
effect, my question is even with an atmosphere composed almost entirely of
greenhouse gasses at earth atmospheric pressure be capable of only holding a
certain amount of heat? and may we be as hot as our planet can get?
