Prof. Sleep (p1.11) starts by encouraging scepticism of the plume hypothesis, and admitting that it is vulnerable to modifications that make it untestable. However, in common with the majority of literature on “hotspots” (which evidently are not hot; Stein and Stein 2003), his article in general implies a complete absence of doubt that plumes exist. Such an approach has been a major deterrent to fundamental questioning of the hypothesis for over three decades.
