4) Accounting for green house effect when establishing the new thermal equilibrium
A good analogy with green house effect consists in considering the atmosphere as a layer of transparent isolation, such as a layer of air, with thermal resistance R = 0,15 [m².K/W] (see file Global warming part I).

This analogy allows us to understand the difference in temperature between that at the surface and that at the periphery of the atmosphere.

Without the variations in the characteristics of the atmosphere, if we stabilise (which is erroneous, unless under immense economic crisis, which is far from being the case) the amount of heat of human origin at its actual level of 1.5 x E13 [W] (i.e 0.03 ...
