Carbon Dioxide Controls Earth Temperature

Greenbelt MD (SPX) Oct 15, 2010 ![][1] Water vapor and clouds are the major contributors to Earth’s greenhouse effect, but a new atmosphere-ocean climate modeling study shows that the planet’s temperature ultimately depends on the atmospheric level of carbon dioxide.
