      Five year average dew points at Fairbanks, Alaska and at airport stations
      in the Midwest were the highest of record from 1998 through 2002*. The
      greatest increase in dewpoints occurred during the non growing season
      months. Stations located in counties with declining population and
      minimal development (Dubuque, Iowa and International Falls, Minnesota)
      had dew point increases as great or greater than other areas, thus
      dewpoint measurements were likely not affected by urban heat influences.
      The most likely explanation for the increases in dewpoints is global
      warming, caused by anthropogenic greenhouse gas emissions and global
      warming feedbacks.
