Dear All,

Attached is the latest draft of the text. During the last two weeks I've made
extensive alterations to 3.3. and 3.8, but there are minor changes to all sections
with the exception of 3.4, 3.6 and 3.9. I'm away next week and have a meeting in
London on July 4, so I'll be back in CRU on July 5. I will have email connection
next week during the meeting I'm going to which is near Rome.
The principal change I've made is to merge the sections on drought
from sections 3.8 and 3.3 into a longer section 3.3.4. There were a number
of differences between these two sections which I've resolved. The only drawback
of having the section in 3.3 is that it refers to Box 3.5 which comes in 3.8. 4 of our
5 recent extremes relate to drought.
Also in this rewrite I removed or have flagged
some sections that relate to paleo. The flagged ones should probably be removed.
I've also flagged some sections in 3.5, 3.7 and 3.8 that are on detection
or impacts which I think should also be removed.

In Beijing, we agreed on a deadline for submission of final figures for the
FOD of June 30. Can these be sent both to Kevin and me and to any others
who've been involved in the various discussions? From July 5 onwards I'll
be working with Kevin to put together a complete set of our diagrams. Albert
mentioned that one or two may not yet be available. If we still want them we
will want some form of placeholder. So the next push should be on these
I have had another push on updating the references. As fast as I put in the
page numbers of those just out, I seem to be adding more in press ones !
Albert agreed to check the references with the text and vice versa, but not
till early August. I am only able to check a few of the common journals
(AMS, AGU, RMS, Climate Dynamics etc)
so can you all spend a little time going through the reference list to see if you can
update those that are now out. There are still about 40-50 that should be out now.
We also need full details for some that are down for years between 1980 and 2004.
Check if the reference is there and add in the details. It might the case that the
reference has been removed. Trying to get these is
time consuming for me. In many cases I have little idea what I'm looking for.
I have said this last paragraph at least twice and Kevin has reiterated the
point, but NOTHING HAS HAPPENED. We are going to be busy over the next
6 weeks, so can all have a concerted look at the references. I hope I've
highlighted all the incomplete references.
Also, whilst you're doing this you will realise that many will not be out
before August 12. We need pdfs for all these.
Here is my current list of pdfs. I have to check later whether any of these are out.

You will see I haven't yet got these into a common naming format, but I am getting
there slowly. We will need pdfs of all papers that we will not have page numbers
by Aug 12.
I think that is all at the moment. Kevin is back this weekend, so he will send
an additional email if there is anything I've forgotten.
