subject: Re: [Wg1-ar4-clas] draft to sign

Hi all - here are a few more edits. I agree with Gabi that we shouldn't include the
"puppet" sentence. Also, I don't think we need to compare what Susan said in Paris (as
quoted by Wasdell) with something that Sir John might hypothetically have said. I think
that sends a message about Susan that we don't mean to send! I've tried to add a sentence
indicating that the Paris process improved the way the document communicates our findings,
but that it did not change the finding themselves.
Cheers, Francis

Hi all, an attempt to some more edits removing the "puppet" sentence and
another sentence that I worried about - now on to the chapter edits checking
(although this is more fun - maybe - anything is more fun than page proofs
apart maybe from doing the taxes).
I admit I am frustrated by what at least one of our collegues said to the new
scientist. He should know better!
Quoting Ken Denman [2]<>:

Hi Piers et al,
I have taken the liberty to suggest a few changes (with change tracker turned on) -
while you Europeans (oops, and Brits) at least are sleeping. And Piers and Richard,
thanks a lot for getting this moving quickly.
Regards, Ken
ps. Piers - my salary is paid by Fisheries and Oceans Canada. They are VERY uneasy when
I speak or write letters to the press, but they get really upset when I don't credit
them appropriately. C'est la vie.

Hi all
This is the latest draft with Jerry's and Ken's edits. However, in addition I've
deleted the para on the Paris meeting - as it was essentially repeated within
the last paragraph, and slightly reordered the other paragraphs
Again please make further
edits. Also please could people approve the attachment of their name to such a
letter. Non highlighted names are people who appear to have already given
approval for their name to be used. If you are a yellow highlighted name I think
you are likely (or very likely) to sign!
If we could have a relaxed attitude and sign a letter that is still in the
process of being drafted it would save someone (me) a bunch of work at the end
collecting approvals
