a cornerstone in climate science

In 1992,The U.K.Meteorological Office's Hadley Center's computer model,which included stratospheric sulphate aerosol forcing in a General Circulation Model,achieved for the first time,replication in broad terms,observed temperature changes over the past 130-years.
The high-resolution program took 90-days run-time on a supercomputer.
Previous modelling had predicted a warmer Earth.
The sulphate aerosols explained the discrepancy,due to their albedo effect in the upper atmosphere,which mitigated solar forcing.
The preliminary results were shared with attendees at the Berlin climate conference that year.
The findings had important policy 'implications'.(fossil-fuels lobbyists' sphincters were probably tighter than a rivet on the Golden Gate Bridge)
