Phil Whitley, pressure alone does not cause an increase in temperature. A gas put under pressure will increase in temperature as the pressure increases, but the heat then dissipates and the gas resumes ambient temperature, even if the pressure remains the same, unless an outside heat source (in this case the sun) adds energy that cannot escape as rapidly = Greenhouse affect.

Phil Whitley, another armchair scientist. The only ones spreading propaganda are the loony denialists. Go back to school and take a science class this time. Venus is hotter than Mercury because it has a much thicker atmosphere. ... The heat the atmosphere traps is called the greenhouse effect. If Venus did not have an atmosphere the surface would be -128 degrees Fahrenheit much colder than 333 degrees Fahrenheit, the average temperature of Mercury

No2 is incorrect, the temperature on Venus is due to atmospheric pressure, not gas makeup. More global warming propaganda!

I did try my best. I was mainly guessing though but, I suppose, my guesses were not that good. Sorry, Dummy!
