Almost no light reaches the surface, about 16 watts, so reflective and dense is its atmosphere.
Since greenhouse theory rests on 'the sun warms the surface, the surface radiates heat, GH gasses block that heat' then with the 'sun warms the surface' part removed, you dont have a GH effect occurring.
And surface temperatures can be accounted for because of its immensely heavy atmosphere, 100 times that of earth. The lapse rate, boyles law, heating through compression etc.
Anyway, perhaps he was just using it as a scare tactic to promote space travel, since he also warned about asteroid strikes.

The sun doesn't need to reach all the way to the surface. It just needs to penetrate far enough that when it's absorbed and the energy radiates back as heat, it can't escape the atmosphere. Hawking was probably right, that's Venus in a nutshell.
Sad to see him pass. The world is definitely poorer now.
Apart from VB6 (which has its unique advantages, most of the problem is our codebase) I am very happy since I prefer C (with a hint of ++) and Assembler to most languages/frameworks/whatever. I like the gritty details and I like working on science or pure engineering. Algorithms, drivers, pieces of OS... that is my ideal environment!
Yesterday I saw a TV commercial for "bronze cut" pasta. As though this makes it somehow better.[^] Fortunately, the box is from the Barilla Artisan series and once you put 'artisan' on it it's got to be worth the extra cost!
The link will emphasize the gibbering idiots that come up with excuses for it being different. My favorite? It's dried slower when it's bronze cut. Another notes the ingredients - which are the same as so many other pastas.
Placebo effect grand mal.
The successful business model is still well established in the proverbial: "A fool and his money are soon parted".
Surprisingly, no: when you use a bronze die instead of Teflon or steel, you get a rougher, more porous surface, to which the sauce "clings" better - more surface area, and easier for capillary action.
As a result Bronze Cut Pasta tastes better!
Bad command or file name. Bad, bad command! Sit! Stay! Staaaay...
