I fully second Ejnar's statement! There are indeed so many important why-questions for which science has given a straight answer! Just consider these few examples:
In the field of physics: Why will a climber fall if he misses his hold?
In the field of climate science: Why do increased greenhouse gas concentrations in the atmosphere lead to increased average earth temperatures?
In the field of biology: Why have living organisms evolved from a common ancestor, and why will they continue to evolve?
However, one big unsolved question remains in the field of psychology: Why do some people continue to deny the evidence?
I am not denying any of the three, but for question two I wonder why generally people don't say 'greenhouse gases', they say 'CO2', which is neither the most common, nor the strongest greenhouse gas!
Haha, you're so funny! Thanks Ejnar!
Shall I rephrase your statement in a more simple way?
Why does always the only person always only mentioning CO2 always asks why others only always speak about CO2 (while they actually don't, of course)?
But I guess there is also an additional underlying question, as your latest post is probably again referring to water vapour as a greenhouse gas:
Why are some apparently well educated persons unable to understand the difference between a forcing and a feedback?
