Keith - I've been asked to separately review this. Obviously we
can't both agree to act as two separate reviewers. It's
probably/possibly SO&P-funded, which might be seen as a conflict,
though I'm sure we'd be as rigorous as ever! Though it sounds
interesting, I'd say no due to lack to time (I've got a different
manuscript to review at the moment).

Cheers

Tim

>>The manuscript's abstract is:

>> Statistical temperature reconstructions rely on the calibration

>>detrended or non-detrended data.

>>assumptions are not fulfilled in this particular reconstruction.
>>The influence of non-climate trends in the proxies (centennial
