Our planet’s surface is more water than land. As you’ll learn from this book, the air we need to breathe carries moisture and there’s a lot of air carrying moisture all around us and above us. For reasons I explain later in this book, warm air carries more moisture than cool air. So, it’s not difficult to see that there could be a connection between global warming and moisture. What I explore in this book is the wide-ranging effects of moisture in our daily life. Things that you might have thought have something to do with water or moisture but have not had tools available to you to work out if moisture is actually involved. This book provides you with examples and tools towards gaining an understanding of moisture related events.
