It seems that we have made considerable progress. But the question remains if convection (especially in the hadley cell) is merely a mechanism that restores the lapse rate and dies out once established; or is it a continuous motoring engine of the earth's air conditioner that transports surface heat (via evaporation in the form latent energy) to higher levels for easier out radiation.

Back later.
