Main Question or Discussion Point

I hear many who believe that AGW is caused primarily by CO2 emissions in the atmosphere.
I also hear from others that water vapor covers the same wave length in absorbtion. With more than 90% of the greenhouse gases being water vapor, what is the basis for the case concerning the influence of CO2.

That is the $64,000 question. It has been discussed in the Earth Sciences thread. Be warned that this question is like throwing a grenade into a room full hornets nests.
