Dear folks,

Many thanks for your comments on the "fact sheet", which I'll try to
modify tomorrow. LLNL intends to issue a press release when our paper is
published later in the week. Here is a second draft of the press
release. This is my modified version of the first draft, which was
written by Anne Stark in our Public Affairs Office. As you can see, the
press release focuses on the contributions of LLNL scientists to the
study. I'd be grateful for any suggestions as to how we might expand the
focus. One possibility is that other institutions might want to issue
their own releases, which would emphasize how this emerging
reconciliation of modeled and observed tropical temperature changes was
facilitated by the development of new observational estimates of surface
and tropospheric temperature change.

In case your home institution wants to issue its own press release, it
would be good to coordinate this with Anne, whom I'm copying on this email.

With best regards,
