subject: A new draft

a new draft is attached. I've shortened a lot of the discussion and added a
few more results. There is now a table showing the coherence of each of 34
proxy records which extend back to 1000 -- this answers a suggestion by
McIntyre and McKitrick that MBH's N. American PC1 is a statistical outlier --
I think one of the figures in the previous version I sent round had a slight
error in that I was using a composite of proxies: for the Mann et al. proxy
collections this included principal component series with arbitrary sign.
I have now made sure that the sign is determined by the correlation with
The draft is still rough in places, but I think it is more readable and
compact now. I'll be away for two weeks: if people can get comments back to
me within the next 3 weeks, I'd like to submit it soon after that.
An obvious next step would be to do a reconstruction using all the 32 long
proxy records, but I haven't done that yet because there are sampling issues
to deal with.
