    When climate scientists say that water vapour “approximately doubles” any prior forcing, they are saying that water vapour feedback is approximately 50%, because it’s 50% + 25% + 12.5% + 6.25% + 3.125% + 1.5625% + 0.78125% +… = 100% total. If it were much >50% feedback then it would amplify until the oceans were vapourized.
