Dear All,

I was warned to this a couple of days ago by Mike Mann. The pdf to get the
report is
[1]http://www.ncpa.org/pub/ba/ba478/ba478.pdf
I've already had Paul Rincon from BBC News online on the phone, asking me about this
new paper ! I told him there wasn't a story, but I still had a long chat with him. I sent
him
a copy of my Reviews of Geophysics paper and he may still do something, but he will
get back to me first. I also told him there wasn't a paper. I suggest you do the same
if called.
If you look at the pdf from the NCPA (the above link) you'll see how bad the piece is. I
had
nothing to do with the 1998 or 1999 papers. The 2003 GRL paper was not an update - but an
alternate one using less series, only those that extended back into the 1st millennium.
The 2003
paper by M+M was published before the M+J paper came out ! The borehole issue is
totally unrelated. I could go on and on !
Cheers
Phil
