"adiabatic" - occurring without loss or gain of heat
Highly unlikely with respect to Venus and the issue of its atmospheric and surface heat content. There are some adiabatic processes playing important roles in the atmospheric physics of Venus, but by definition, adiabatic processes are energy neutral, and don't seem particularly relevent to issues of Venus' surface/atmosphere heat, nor any proposed nullification of the CO2 greenhouse effect.
I'd recommend "The Recent Evolution of Climate on Venus" Bullock & Grinspoon
as a good reference on Venus's heat.
