I have edited and reformatted the abstract quite a bit , so you had better check it
thoroughly again. Please note that have no real objection to Phil being a co author -
other than a possible lack of balance with two CRU people. This would be helped
considerably if we considered one more author ( Ray Bradley) perhaps. What do you think?
Anyway, I am happy with the abstract now. We could include a whole group of "collaborating
authors " (as in IPCC reports) to acknowledge the input "the usual subjects" will
undoubtedly make. Cheers

I hope all is well.
Deadline for submitting our CLIVAR abstract vastly approaches, so I've taken the liberty
of drafting an abstract, which I've attached in word format. Truth be told, I've
borrowed liberally from some other recent abstracts, including ones that Phil and I
wrote jointly--I vote we make Phil a co-author on the abstract for this reason, among
others--is that ok w/ you?
Please let me know if you have any comments, and feel free to edit and send me a revised
version. Its presently exactly at the 400 word limit, so we can't lengthen, but we can
remove. I need to submit this electronically by Friday, because I'll be travelling and
away from my email through after the deadline after then. If I don't hear from you by
Friday, I'll submit as is, w/ our three names on it...
thanks in advance for any feedback you can provide,
