a couple of quick points - more later.

- why does the CET line on figure A1 only go to 1950? Surely you have
enough data to go to 1982 with no padding? I think that it is important
to graphically show that even if you take IPCC90 at face value, it still
shows that today is warmer. The graph will be looked at much more often
than the text will be read.

- I was talking to Ben Cook recently, and he was describing some tree
species in Vietnam and Thailand that clearly had annual rings and that
they were in the process of cross-validating the dating. In general, he
was pretty optimistic about the prospects for tropical dendro. Thus in
the response to reviewers and maybe the text, we should be quite open to
