Hi Phil,

Thanks for the update. Sounds good. I think I'll be able to make it next
year, never been to Vienna so maybe this will be the time. I'mhappy to
take the lead in organizing the session next year in any case. Sounds
like this was a stunning success, especially in comparison w/ the way
the Perugia meeting is shaping up! I think I know Gerrit Lohmann, from
what I recall he is a reasonable guy, so sounds like things are in good
hands.

I'm pretty sure Gore spoke pro bono at AGU, perhaps as a favor to Tim
Kileen (I think they know each other). We have tried to get Al Gore to
come here to PSU, but no luck. Lonnie got him out to Ohio State a couple
years back, but that was early on before the movie had yet appeared, etc.

Glad to hear that the Exxon attempt failed, they've got to be kidding!

talk to you later,

mike
