There are a couple of links in Ben's email below.
I think you said last night you had the pdf of the paper.
Here's another pdf of a different paper just out.
Here are some email addresses!

Mick is still doing Tiempo !
Hiya Henry
Phil passed on the message.
Here's what I've been up to on the non-academic front since moving here...
The main house, which is currently at the design stage, will have a rather
large study/library/meeting room but probably not quite big enough for a
conference! However, we have identified a great conference centre to the
north of us (near where Bill Gates was just holidaying so must be good).
With best wishes for 2008
Hi Phil
Or if you don't check the link this week...
You really must update your website photo!
With best wishes for 2009

Dear coauthors of the Santer et al. International Journal of Climatology paper (and
other interested parties),
I have now publicly released the synthetic MSU tropical lower tropospheric temperatures
that were the subject of Mr. Stephen McIntyre's request to the U.S. Dept. of
Energy/National Nuclear Security Agency under the U.S. Freedom of Information Act
(FOIA). I have also released additional synthetic MSU temperatures which were not
requested by Mr. McIntyre. These synthetic MSU datasets are available on PCMDI's
publicly-accessible website. The link to the datasets is:
Technical information about the synthetic MSU datasets is provided in a document
"Information regarding synthetic Microwave Sounding Unit (MSU) temperatures calculated
from CMIP-3 archive"
The link to the technical document is:
I hope that these datasets will prove useful for bona fide scientific research, and will
be employed for such purposes only.
I am also hopeful that after publication of these datasets, I will be able to return to
full-time research, unencumbered by further FOIA requests from Mr. McIntyre. In my
opinion, Mr. McIntyre's FOIA requests are for the purpose of harassing Government
scientists, and not for the purpose of improving our understanding of the nature and
causes of climate change.
I'd like to thank Dave Bader, Bill Goldstein, and Pat Berge for helping me complete the
process of reviewing, releasing, and publishing the synthetic MSU datasets and the
technical document. And thanks to all of you for your support and encouragement over the
past two months. It is deeply appreciated.
With best regards,
