Dear all,
Here is my best attempt to incorporate everyone's suggestions, views, etc. One major change
you'll notice is that the final item (the one on co2 increase and recent warming) was
eliminated, because it seemed to open a can of warms, and also distract from the central
message. Note that, with the number of references we have, we are currently just about at
the word limit for the piece. We shouldn't go over 1400 words, which puts some tight
constraint on any additions, etc.
I hope to forward a draft of Figure 1 later on this afternoon. I'm assuming that Phil can
take care of Figure 2 (Phil?--Scott has graciously indicated his willingness to help if
necessary), but its pretty clear what this figure will show, so I don't thinks its that
essential that we have that figure done to try to finalize the draft.
I'll attempt one final(?) revision of the text based on any remaining comments you may
have--please try, if possible, to keep the suggested changes minimal at this point. I'll
assume that anyone we haven't yet heard back from in the author list over the next day or
so is unable to be a co-author, and will respectfully drop them from the author list any
related future emailings.
Thanks all for your help. Its rare to have every single co-author make substantial
contributions to improving the draft, and that was clearly the case here...
