Increased water temperature results in increased evaporation, water vapor is a greenhouse gas; thus, in consideration of global warming, positive feedback.

Generally gases are less soluble in warmer water. This includes oxygen and carbon dioxide. The release of carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas by warming water is another instance of positive feedback with respect to global warming. [1]


  1. Why does the solubility of gases usually increase as temperature goes down?
