I am showing you just technical bits that I need to make clear. It
is probably less then half of the whole! You need to understand that
speaking with you and others made me rather clear the objections.
Their arguments are more complicate do condensate. I am bringing in
it views of Ray Pierrehumbert, of Bard, of Delaygue. I also spoke to
Stocker. Just, the editors need me to first report what are
Courtillot's claims, that's the way it works in the news. I cannot
start up with the comments, like in a web blog.
Look at these, please,
Does they look like skeptic stories?

However, I take it as a misunderstanding.
If I get your comments by today evening, they will be most useful.
Thanks, Jacopo

I'm not going to comment on your text, because
your report is awful. I thought you wanted a balanced
report. What you've written isn't. You've not understood
any of what was said on the Real Climate Audit web site.

You have several words wrong and what you say doesn't
make sense at times. But you don't seem to want to
discuss proper climate science.
