Water vapor is the number one greenhouse gas. Its specific heat is 1.0, the highest there is. Specific heat is how much heat something holds. I've wondered why so called scientists ignore this inconvenient fact. They push for fuel cells, which exhaust wapor vapor, as alternative green energy. They are so obsessed by their agenda that they ignore facts that are pertinent.

Thanks. I was under the impression that CO2 was a more effective greenhouse gas, and that water vapor was so critical only due to its abundance. Are you sure, pound for pound, water vapor is a more effective greenhouse gas than CO2?

Burning any fossil fuel gives off water vapor as well as CO2. Where do you think all those hydrogen atoms attached to the carbon chain go??
