Abstract: The effect of (i) the observed increase of sea surface temperature, responsible for the corresponding increase of the evaporation, (ii) of solar activity and (iii) volcanic explosive eruptions explains 86% of the increase of global air temperature. The contribution of the increased atmospheric concentration of CO2 equivalent (0.15°C) caused an increase of the vapour pressure and thence a decrease of the evaporation. The loss of the consequent greenhouse effect due to such a loss, reduced the net effect of CO2 equivalent on the global air temperature to 0.08°C (0.06 °C of volcanic and 0.02°C of anthropogenic origin). The decrease of evaporation caused by the increase of the global air temperature, plus the direct effect of solar irradiance on the surface of the ocean explain 89% of the observed increase of sea surface temperature.
