AFAIK, H2O is an indispensable part of air so if I were to measure CO2 concentration I would not take H2O out of air.

Then you are measuring water, not CO2. They both absorb infrared light of similar frequencies.

I "know" Andrei Cerbu and Andreea Munteanu. Andreea is singing and Andrei on guitar has black hair. And once again, non Americains we harmed in the making of this music.

No Americans were harmed in the making of these music videos. In fact none of it was made in les Amériques. Il est vrais


With Mauna Loa, it's possible that it's representative of the air coming from Los Angeles, California, USA. If so, it's only representative of that one air stream/flow.
And for Deutsche, there's; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lp_6Ecu-XyM or with a Romanian and a Brit https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xyF5A7BFnqw

The first song features a Swedish lead singer with Spaniards.

H2O is part of air. That's like saying I take out O2 to measure CO2. That is WRONG.
