"The fact that the oceans are warmer now than they were, say, 30 years ago means there's about on average 4 percent more water vapor lurking around over the oceans than there was, say, in the 1970s," he says.

Warmer water means more water vapor rises up into the air, and what goes up must come down."

I agree, but more so because the planet's THERMOHALINE CIRCULATION is going to collapse... //www.city-data.com/forum/12271362-post23.html http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_climate_change

I prefer the "colder" powder snow...it's better for skiing but harder to make snowballs.

I just don't get it According to the news this week, the planet hasn't gotten warmer since 1995. According to The Russian and Chinese scientists, solar activity peaked a couple of years ago. In fact, a group of Russian scientists made a bet with UK scientist that after the solar flares peaked the earth should see a decline in temperature.

I prefer a warmer world. More CO2 means more plants, larger animals, (as in dinosaurs grew big when it was warm). Colder means Ice Ages, less CO2 results in fewer plants, starvation and that man must adapt to ice ages. Hugh glaciers moving down from the north covering many of our modern cities. Keep the CO2 coming.

But in the end, it is nature that is going to have its way, not what man wants.

Yep, but we do not care what kind.
Still way under what we should have, and that is only looking at what we need for the summer water usage ......
