Obviously, the greenhouse effect is a good thing. But of course, the current questions is: can we get too much of a good thing?There are five main greenhouse gases (gases that trap the Earth’s long wave radiation and produce a warmer climate).

The finding is important because it used real-world readings to verify what computer simulations have predicted is happening in a key zone of Earth's atmosphere, said Brian Soden, a University of Miami scientist and lead author of the study. It's getting wetter up there, which means it's getting hotter down here. "This is one of the first studies to show it is increasing at the same rate...
