Here's always been a question: where does the water go? Ice to gas to liquid to vapor to...? Water is a non compressible fluid. It can't be made smaller or lighter in liquid form. As vapor it is subject to temperature loss which quickly distills it to liquid again. As ice it is fixed and captured along with the minerals and other elements to which it adheres. It can be separated (cracked) into it's elements - Oxygen and Hydrogen yet recombines with the input of energy into....water. Our gravitational attraction keeps everything here. Water doesn't "escape" into the void of space. Neither does ozone, O2, or any other gas. Did we spring a leak?

The same applies to everything on the planet. It is all finite. We don't make any more of anything. It just gets changed/altered from one state to the next and maybe back. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure that out. Tired of the old "xxx on record" BS. There is a heck of a lot more "unrecorded" history but since it wasn't recorded I guess it doesn't count. Like the thousands of years of ice or temps higher than they are now? Or sea levels higher and lower than they are now. Radical left wing extremist demokkkrats will say and do anything to further their goals of subjugation of the masses.

Apparently you miss the point. As most chemicals, water exists in three physical forms -- solid, liquid, and gas. What separates them is the energy change necessary to convert them from one form to another. You may have a conceptual problem with iron vapor, but just like mercury vapor or sodium vapor, you can obtain them if you put enough energy in. As you indicate,water vapor will condense and fall to earth either as a liquid or solid, depending on how much energy you reradiate to space. (continued)

Average planetary temperatures haven’t budged in 16 years. Hurricanes and strong tornadoes are at or near their lowest ebb in decades. Global sea ice is back to normal, while the Antarctic icepack continues to grow. The rate of sea level rise remains what it was in 1900.

And yet, President Obama and many politicians, newscasters and alarmist scientists continue to insist that carbon dioxide emissions are changing Earth’s climate, and we need to take immediate action to prevent storms like Hurricane Sandy and avert catastrophes predicted by IPCC computer models and “scientific consensus.” Not surprisingly, polls show public...
