since Israel replanted the forests that the Arabs cut down, the annual rainfall has increased proportionately with the increase in trees.
Nice to see it recognised.
But, how do trees call rain? Its almost like there is a God or something.
Very interesting paper. What they are claiming is that trees soak up existing water and then some of that water evaporates to form clouds. In a desert, there is no water to evaporate. So you have to have trees that are being watered before the desert will pull in even more water vapor. Unless of course they assume the water content in the trees will evaporate and eventually create the pressure drop overhead. So basically they are stating where there is water there is water vapor. That water vapor gas rises and condenses again forming water. That phase state change affects the pressure of the atmosphere.
That is perhaps the basic mechanism explaining how the oceans or water control the atmospheric temperature, wind movement and the pressures. That combined with solar input could give you a very accurate model. Why on Earth the simpletons assumed CO2 controlled everything, is way beyond me. Even they claim though that CO2 has amplifying affects through water vapor.
