The "other" Greenhouse Gas

All this talk about carbon dioxide, man-made global warming and the cost of controlling the planet is beginning to make me giddy. But then a colleague reminded me that it is no wonder that scientists cannot get their global warming models to work when meteorologists cannot even predict the next seven days of weather with any precision.

So what's the connection, you ask?

Simply this. By far the largest component of the so-called greenhouses gas effect is water vapor.
