    ... and density gravity.

    CO2 molecules are far denser than H2O molecules at liquid but not at gas. Please don't paste me as a moron for asking this stupid question.

    -37 Celsius is maybe around the time CO2 turns into liquid.

    :EDIT:

    This has to do about greenhouse gases, temperature and global climate change (and NASA data).

    You didn't ask a a question.

    ????

    :EDIT:

    I don't think they are far, but hey, gravity doesn't discriminate.

    Virtually all substances, when cooled to a solid, are much more dense than their liquid or gaseous states.

    The better question is: why is water so much less dense as a solid than it should be?

    The answer lies in the dipole nature of water molecules. They form a relatively open matrix, meaning the solid has a larger volume for a given mass. That's also why the solid form of water is buoyant in liquid water.

    While I can't disagree, I more interested on the density of the molecule.

    I don't see what liquids have to do with that.

    Molecules don't have densities. Materials composed of large numbers of molecules have densities.

    Does an apple fall from the tree or does it fucking floats?:EDIT:

    Water has more density as a liquid than a solid so WTF don't you get?

    You should try harder to make sense.

    Water, as Dave explained, has special characteristics in its phase changes as compared to anything else.

    You're still not making any sense. What has all of that got to do with anything? What's your point?

    Whether CO2 enters the atmisophere or not.

    There is CO2 in the atmosphere. It's a gas. Its solid and liquid phases are not relevant.

    Is CO2 gas heavier then liquid water?

    What has that got to do with CO2 in the atmosphere?

    You still didn't answer my question.

    You posted the density yourself earlier. Of course CO2 gas is less dense than liquid water. Now why won't you answer my question? What has the density of water got to do with CO2 in the atmosphere?
