Figure above: The study by Kleidon and Renner calculated the changes of the water cycle by a warm-ing caused by the greenhouse effect and by solar radiation to be 2.2% and 3.2% per degree of warm-ing respectively. If global warming would result in a temperature increase of 5°C, this would en-hance precipitation by 11% (red arrow). Would this warming be compensated by geoengineering, then precipitation would decline more strongly (blue arrow). Hence, geoengineering may compen-sate temperatures, but the water cycle would be weakened by 5% compared to the present-day. A recently published intercomparison study of much more complex climate models (circles) agrees with these estimates.©
