Hmm last time I work off assumptions (not) but good work on putting me in my place
. Thanks though, didn't know that...better to learn it now than
So Venus isn't even as homely as I figured it might be...blah whatever it's a simple to fix problem though.
Really...ahh the genius of nature.
Even if we reduced Venus's atmosphere to that of Earth's, its temperature globablly would remain moderate even though one side will be in darkness
for about 122 days.
Because obviously, atmosphere is a heat-sink, if it's cold in one area there are prevailing winds to fill the pressure changes, a convection current
if you will. The change in density causes a reaction to balance it.
Venus would have some good fierce easterlies (as opposed to our westerlies?
) but I don't think it would be like Mercury, where one side is in the
shade for 40 days and thus 40 days of -200 degrees.
The problem would be living in such conditions, I'd imagine most life forms would have to be fungi or animals, with various lichens being the
"base" food source instead of photo-synthesizing plants.
But no, the temperature wouldn't be too high to live, it'd be hotter oh hell yeah...but not unbearable. Hmm the introduction of a lot of water
might help too. It'd be tricky that's for sure but I'm saying using the forces of nature we could cause a global heat-exchange that would keep
things fairly balanced and breezy
I was thinking of water because as it evaporated it would help cool down the surfaces in the day and as it froze it would help cool the atmosphere and
so a large amount of water would help circulation of that heat even more.
The poles would obviously be the more viable regions ~.~
Anyways, I'll have to think more on that
