Overall, assuming that a general increase in CO 2 should be accompanied by an increase in water vapor is illogical due to the following: 1) CO 2 equilibrium. Although an increase in atmospheric CO 2 would generate a greater greenhouse effect, in turn, an increase in atmospheric water vapor, one needs to take into account the tendency of nature to return to an equilibrium-like state by the global carbon cycle. Logically, an increased presence of carbon within an environment would create an overall net increase of energy potential, and ultimately, a new current equilibrium level. From this conclusion, one can see that an increase in atmospheric CO 2 will increase atmospheric water vapor if and only if CO
