Hi Tony,

Here is my review of the Yoo and Wright paper. Frankly, it is very poor for reasons that
I describe in my review and really must not be published as is. It would do grossly
unfair harm to dendroclimatology because the authors have simply not made their case. If
anything, they have actually vindicated the "reverse regression" method based on what
they show in their Table 2, even if they don't care to admit it.

I also see that they used the same tree-ring data as Briffa to test their method. Yet,
there is not so much as the slightest acknowledgement of where the data were obtained.
>From Briffa? I assume so. If so, they should acknowledge it. Also, had you considered
Briffa as a reviewer as well? Since this paper is such a negative attack on his work,
that would have been proper.

Anyway, I appreciate the fact that you sent me this paper to review.

Cheers,

Ed

Dr. Cook,
I am not sure if you agreed to do the review (at least I can't find it).
Will you be able to complete the review in the next week? Two weeks?
Look forward to hearing from you.
