Extreme Climate Events caused by Global Warming that is not happening because of Sulfates!

Phil Jones and Mike McCracken in a Climategate email exchange show the contempt they have for the public with the alternative theory ready to explain why the current "settled science" theory was bogus. When warming stopped Global Warming became Climate Change and the latest scare is that every major climatic event is classified as "extreme" and caused by the Global Warming that isn't happening because of sulfate pollution!

 In any case, if the sulfate hypothesis is right, then your prediction of warming might end up being wrong. I think we have been too readily explaining the slow changes over past decade as a result of variability--that explanation is wearing thin.

I would just suggest, as a backup to your prediction, that you also do some checking on the sulfate issue, just so you might have a quantified explanation in case the prediction is wrong. Otherwise, the Skeptics will be all over us--the world is really cooling, the models are no good, etc. And all this just as the US is about ready to get serious on the issue.

This prophetic exchange was in 2009 and of course warming has stopped and they have cynically wheeled out the new settled science   this year . Of course in our new Orwellian world this is now the only version of settled science.
