From Mike Bastasch at the Daily Caller:

Meteorologist Anthony Watts and amateur scientist Willis Eschenbach released new research suggesting “global climate sensitivity to increased carbon dioxide, and the potential feedback mechanism of increased water vapor in Earth’s atmosphere, is actually far less than postulated by the IPCC.”

Watts and Eschenbach used satellite data to quantify the increased feedback from water vapor in the atmosphere. They found forcing water vapor since 1988 was greater than “all the other IPCC-listed forcing since 1750.”
