More on Pacific-Indian Ocean Dynamics and Negative Feedback

This water vapor thing really makes sense, you know.

Water is a great damper, keeps temps from wild fluctuations. When temp goes up water vaporizes and reduces temps. YadaYada.

  1. So if humans take action to mitigate the effects of anthropomorphic global warming there is a significant likelyhood of overshooting the mark.
    Seems that whoever designed the system already accounted for human activity in the feedback systems. 8^)

  2. Citizen, it is anthropogenic (human in origin) not anthropomorphic (having human form) and it is far more likely that cessation of all “greenhouse” gas production would have no impact at all as the natural sources of GHGs swamp the human contribution by a long way. Sorry for being nitpicky.

  3. Also, the increase in CO2 and precipitation might result in a net increase in the biomass of vegetation, thereby reducing the CO2 in the atmosphere and augmenting the buffering effect.
