    This new data set shows that as surface temperature increases, so does atmospheric humidity, Dessler said. Dumping greenhouse gases into the atmosphere

      "This new data set shows that as surface temperature increases, so
      does atmospheric humidity," Dessler said. "Dumping greenhouse gases
      into the atmosphere makes the atmosphere more humid. And since water
      vapor is itself a greenhouse gas, the increase in humidity amplifies
      the warming from carbon dioxide."
