The Pomeron, which dominates high energy elastic and diffractive hadronic processes, must be largely gluonic in nature. We use a recent picture of a scalar glueball/sigma system with coupling of the sigma to glue determined from experiment to predict strong peripheral sigma production in the pp pi(0)pi(0) and double-sigma production in the pp pi(0)pi(0)pi(0)pi(0) channels.
