I suspect that all the water vapor still in the stratosphere from the  
Hunga Tonga-Hunga Ha’apai volcano on Jan. 15, 2022 is largely  


All that humidity is the atmosphere is unprecedented and is probably  
equilibrating ocean and air temperatures to a certain degree, prevent  

Although BillK fanning himself to keep cool across the Atlantic might  
also be contributing via the butterfly effect. ;)
