Abstract Climate models and satellite observations both indicate that the total amount of water in the atmosphere will increase at a rate of 7\% per kelvin of surface warming. However, the climate models predict that global precipitation will increase at a much slower rate of 1 to 3\% per kelvin. A recent analysis of satellite observations does not support this prediction of a muted response of precipitation to global warming. Rather, the observations suggest that precipitation and total atmospheric water have increased at about the same rate over the past two decades.
