"In the troposphere (the lowest layer of the atmosphere) greenhouse gases trap infrared radiation, causing the well-known "global warming" effect "

It is indeed "well known" but for some crazy reason it just isn't happening. Checked the temperature over the last few years?

And if you would, please let us know what the thermostat should be set to for best effect. During the planet's history it has been both warmer and cooler, I'm just trying to get a feel for the correct temperature here. Can you help me out? Can you tell us how to get there?

This heat being shed by the upper atmosphere, any idea where that originates?

I find your motion to control my avatar amusing, but wonder if it is a symptom of something else.
