One thought on “What causes the temperatures in the upper atmosphere to be so cold when it is actually closer to the sun?”

  1. My reply:

    The iron laws of thermodynamics. The so-called lapse rate of temperature drop with height above the ground is proof that the Earth’s atmosphere is a giant chimney not greenhouse, taking heat deposited by the Sun from the surface up into space while cooling it along the way. This is caused by the sheer mass of the atmosphere and gravity, not the atmosphere’s composition. The iron laws of thermodynamics are what keep the atmosphere suspended between the surface and space instead of collapsing into a single layer on the surface or escaping to space. If the Sun were to go dead then eventually the entire atmosphere would freeze and fall to the surface, but it never fails, keeping the system balanced within a zone. Sorry, but the percentage of carbon dioxide is irrelevant, that’s why CO2 greenhouse warming is a hoax based on fake physics. Once heat leaves the surface it rises slowly to space, and never returns to heat the surface up a second time like the hoaxers lie. That the Earth is warmer than the Moon is not due to any greenhouse effect of CO2, it’s because the entire atmosphere acts like a leaky blanket that captures the heat radiation from the surface and slows its escape to space, but never sends it back down, and despite the climate alarmists, can never cause runaway global warming. Read my essay exploding the CO2 greenhouse warming theory, that the hoaxers don’t want you to read because they’re really globalist Marxists in a plot to destroy capitalism using CO2 as a scapegoat.
    “Life on Earth depends on energy coming from the Sun. About half the light reaching Earth’s atmosphere passes through the air and clouds to the surface, where it is absorbed and then radiated upward in the form of infrared heat. About 90 percent of this heat is then absorbed by the greenhouse gases and radiated back toward the surface, which is warmed to a life-supporting average of 59 degrees Fahrenheit (15 degrees Celsius).” – NASA Web site Climate change causes: A blanket around the Earth’ (https://climate.nasa.gov/causes/)
