In this paper we show that a gray body which separated from vacuum by a material interface and submitted to outside incident radiation can behave like a Pseudo Radiation Energy Amplifier. The Earth (Earth + atmosphere) is not a simple isolated gray body but it is in fact a Pseudo Radiation Energy Amplifier with adequate reflection coefficients. The balance of the energy exchanged between Earth and outer space is reconsidered and the estimated Earth's ground temperature mean value 15 °C is then derived.
