Heating effect of water vapor

Water evaporates from the surface, trapping heat with it in the atmosphere, to later condense in the clouds and fall back on earth in the form of rain.

This natural cycle gets affected by us indirectly – through releasing other heat-trapping gases, which warm the atmosphere. And a warmer atmosphere can hold more water vapor, which becomes a vicious feedback loop for the climate.

More water vapor adds to an already heated atmosphere and causes even more vapor to stuck in the air.
