Thanks for the reprints of the comment/reply, Eduardo, which are
Did you already see the article just posted at realclimate.org which
discusses these papers (and also mentions Burger and Cubasch, 2005):
Seems rather biased and the tone is certainly not constructive.
I really hope that the discussion of bias in reconstructions will
proceed in a much more constructive way at the PAGES/CLIVAR meeting
in Wengen in June, which will be attended by me, Keith, Eduardo and
some of the authors of this realclimate.org article. We will do our
best to ensure that it is constructive and good-spirited!
