Will this do? I note your comment about the Epstein map.
I hear you partied in Sweden.

Sorry to bother you - knowing how busy you are and everything. Would it
be possible to send me of copy of the slide/diagram that shows the
projected shift in daily temperature extremes following a shift in the
mean under climate change - the schematic one - with the normal
distributions and the area under the curve for the extreme events
marked. I am sure you know the one I mean. Thanks.
Also, at the Tyndall workshop on adaptation last month, one of your
last slides showed one of Paul Epstein's maps illustrating disease
outbreaks and disasters all over the world. I would hestitate about
showing this because it is not really technically accurate regarding the
