Mike,
Yes I'll be in Bern in June. I won't get there till the Monday pm though. Keith is
going with me tomorrow so I'll let him know you're pleased with Ch 6. Ch 3 needs a
lot of work still, but we have broken the back of it. Lots to do on the details and
getting better and clearer figures. I am expecting many more comments on the FOD
(first-order draft) after we submit that in the late summer. We still have 40 sets of
comments from our CAs and 5-6 formal friendly reviews. I hope once all these are
in and then the draft reduced in size with better figures and more concise text we'll be
mostly there. Responding to the zillions of comments will then be much easier
with that draft than the current one.
Cheers
Phil

Hi Phil,
Thanks for touching base. Things are getting busy, w/ the move to Penn State just around
the corner now. I'm also trying to finalize my reviewer comments on the IPCC chapter 6.
Keith and company did a great job, and my comments are mostly minor and (hopefully)
constructive. Your chapter looked very good by the way! Be prepared for an onslaught of
comments from the contrarians! They've probably hired a staff of hundreds to type
away--the online comment form makes this very easy.
The Sci. Am piece was good too. I agree w/ you about Bill R.'s stuff--I think Bill is a
good scientist, and he's a personal friend too. But I remain a bit skeptical. At least
he's putting this out in a constructive fashion however...
Regarding Science comment--yeah, we wanted to revise significantly to incorporate
results from our J. Climate letter. W/out those results, the comment was much weaker.
Science told us that this would be too significant a change, but said that we could opt
instead for them to do an "editor's choice" piece on our J. Climate paper. Sounded like
a good deal to me. Please don't tell the GKSS folks about any of this. I'd prefer the
element of surprise.
Still awaiting word from Nature on the status of the Moberg comment. Will keep you
posted.
talk to you later,
Mike
p.s. see you in Bern in June, right??

Mike,
This was a good one as stories go. Someone finally got to the other reconstructions.
Just also seen the March Scientific American. Saw your story earlier, but hadn't
seen Ruddiman's bit. Not sure I believe it.
Tim got an email from Eduardo today. He says you've withdrawn your comment
to Science on von Storch et al. Is this true? Do you reckon the paper with Caspar
and others in J. Climate is a better way of responding? By the way you've pissed
off GKSS by withdrawing.
Is the Nature comment on Moberg et al. still awaiting a response?
Off from tomorrow from April 6-15. Should be in email contact - at least from April
10.
Cheers
Phil
