Water vapour drives carbon cycle

That's according to this peer reviewed paper published in the Journal of Geophysical Research:

... the carbon cycle is essentially driven by solar energy via the water cycle intermediary.
Just to be clear - I'm not saying this is the last word, just that the science of climate is not settled.

It's scarcely a science at all, you know; they can't do controlled experiments and the system is so complicated that mere observation is a poor source of insight. Added to which, many of their measurements are (probably) unreliable. And they don't really test their models honestly - that is to say, without "fudge factors".
