After nearly 40 years in Oklahoma, I’m prepared to state that under any set of conditions, with your choice of observation techniques, the atmosphere does whatever it damn well pleases.
So to me, this looks like a good bet:
Concern about global warming will persist until it’s replaced with concern about global cooling. The policies we must implement immediately to stop certain catastrophe will remain the same.
The next step, I suppose, is concern over global stasis: “We’re not getting the temperature variations we used to!”
