Andrei The good news - Global Warming has stopped. The bad news - its our fault

It never rains but it pours
LONDON (Reuters) - Smoke belching from Asia's rapidly growing economies is largely responsible for a halt in global warming in the decade after 1998 because of sulfur's cooling effect, even though greenhouse gas emissions soared, a U.S. study said on Monday.

The paper raised the prospect of more rapid, pent-up climate change when emerging economies eventually crack down on pollution.


World temperatures did not rise from 1998 to 2008, while manmade emissions of carbon dioxide from burning fossil fuel grew by nearly a third, various data show.

Maybe the whole theory of man made global warming is on its last legs, it's been a great money spinner though so whatever it takes to keep the gravy train rolling is worthwhile I suppose.

So all we have to do is pump as much Sulphur Dioxide into the atmosphere as we need to attain the temperature we want?

Luckily some of our (richest) geeks have already thought about this:
