Dear Michaels,
Count me in. I know that it would be lunacy to start a group edit of your short
letter, but you might consider replacing two terms that will be seen as jargon,
and may be unduly opaque. You could replace "anthropogenic" with
something like "resulting from human actions" and "paleoclimatic" with
"studies of ancient (or past) climates".
Title, etc.: Malcolm K. Hughes, Professor, Laboratory of Tree-ring Research,
University of Arizona

Cheers, Malcolm
