to: Phil Jones <p.jonesatXYZxyz.ac.uk>
Gavin and I have been discussing, we think it will be important for us to do something on
the Thompson et al paper as soon as it appears, since its likely that naysayers are going
to do their best to put a contrarian slant on this in the blogosphere.
Would you mind giving us an advance copy. We promise to fully respect Nature's embargo
(i.e., we wouldn't post any article until the paper goes public) and we don't expect to in
any way be critical of the paper. We simply want to do our best to help make sure that the
right message is emphasized.
thanks in advance for any help!
