If you take a look at Venus' atmosphere at a location (height) where the atmospheric pressure is similar to earth's atmospheric pressure, the Venusian temperature is higher, at least for those regions of each atmosphere where the temperature change is approximately linear with altitude change.

Isn't this higher temperature at points of similar pressure the true indication of differences in solar input and greenhouse gas effects for the two planets?
