The Water Vapor Greenhouse Effect

The greenhouse effect of increased CO2 on earth is amplified by water vapor. When CO2 causes a small increase in temperature, this causes an increase in water vapor due to evaporation. Water Vapor has a stronger greenhouse effect. This relation doesn’t exist on Venus, since there is minuscule amounts of water there.
