Just agreed to review a paper for GRL - it is absolute rubbish. It is having a go at
CRU temperature data - not the latest vesion, but the one you used in MBH98 !! We added
lots of data in for the region this person says has Urban Warming ! So easy review to do.
Sent Ben the Soon et al. paper and he wonders who reviews these sorts of things. Says
GRL hasn't a clue with editors or reviewers. By chance they seem to have got the right
person with the one just received.
Can I ask you something in CONFIDENCE - don't email around, especially not to
Keith and Tim here. Have you reviewed any papers recently for Science that say that
MBH98 and MJ03 have underestimated variability in the millennial record - from models
or from some low-freq proxy data. Just a yes or no will do. Tim is reviewing them - I
to make sure he takes my comments on board, but he wants to be squeaky clean with
discussing them with others. So forget this email when you reply.
