Water Vapor Most Important Greenhouse Gas Reports Water and Health Researcher Sharon Kleyne

Grants Pass, OR (PRWEB) August 23, 2013

Water vapor, also known as humidity, is Earth’s most important and abundant greenhouse gas, says water and health researcher Sharon Kleyne. Sharon Kleyne is Founder of Bio Logic Aqua Research, a water company specializing in fresh water, health and dehydration research, and product development. As part of her personal commitment to water education, Kleyne hosts the globally syndicated Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water® radio show on VoiceAmerica and Apple iTunes.

The water and health researcher, and radio commentator, spoke in response to Al Gore’s most recent interview on global warming. Kleyne was concerned that during the Al Gore interview, there was no mention of recent environmental changes in the all-important airborne water vapor that keeps every living organism alive. Water vapor is the most abundant greenhouse gas in the Earth atmosphere.

The most recent Al Gore interview on global warming appeared in the Washington Post Online, August 21, 2013 in Ezra Kleine’s article, “Al Gore explains why he’s optimistic about stopping global warming.”

The greenhouse effect caused by water vapor, Kleyne explains, is illustrated by the fact that in low humidity desert areas that are extremely hot in daytime, nighttime temperatures can drop to below freezing. In more humid areas, such as New Orleans, the daytime high might be considerably cooler but difference between the daytime and nighttime temperature may only be a few degrees. This has to do with water vapor’s ability to selectively absorb infrared radiation from the Earth.

The most important and abundant greenhouse gasses, according to Kleyne, are (1) water vapor (36% to 70%), (2) carbon dioxide (9% to 26%), (3) methane (4% to 9%), and (4) ozone (3% to 7%). (From Kiehl and Trenberth, “Earth’s annual mean energy budget,” American Meteorological Society, 2006). The importance of water vapor as a greenhouse gas was noted on the Sharon Kleyne Hour Power of Water radio show by former NASA and NOAA Climatologist DeWayne Cecil, a frequent guest. Water vapor is 3 to 4 time more abundant than carbon dioxide.

Kleyne is concerned about Al Gore’s emphasis on CO2, and his failure to mention water vapor as a greenhouse gas, because her own research has produced evidence that as Earth’s climate changes, the air’s humidity also changes. With global warming comes widespread drought, which not only threatens the water supply in many places but also lowers the air’s humidity. Climate controlled indoor areas, cold areas and windy areas also tend to have lowered humidity.

A surprising large percentage of the body’s daily water intake, says Kleyne, comes from water vapor from the air through body surfaces such as skin, lungs and eyes. That’s why people need to drink more water in dry areas to avoid dehydration.

There is some evidence, according to Kleyne, that when humidity combines with air pollution, the ability of the vapor droplets to absorb heat, and to beneficially penetrate and hydrate skin, may become impaired. Almost no research has been published on this subject but DeWayne Cecil believes that changes in Earth’s airborne vapor/humidity, whether caused by drought or pollution, could eventually have a profound effect on the hydrological cycle and rainfall.

The same humidity changes, says Kleyne, will also have a profound effect on human health. A rapid global increase in dehydration diseases such as dry eye and skin Cancer, is already concerning physicians and public health workers.

Kleyne urges Mr. Gore exert his considerable influence to help protect the Earth’s humidity, which she believes is even more precious than water or oxygen in sustaining life.
