Earth - Clouds

The cloud distribution is represented during the phenomenon known as "El Niño" (1997-98) and shows anomalies in sea surface temperatures.

No cloud dynamics = No Life

We can find out a few things about other remote planets by just looking at its brightness and variations. Cloud dynamics indicate the existence of water, which is required for life as we know it.
