yes, I also found it strange. We noticed that Amman and Wahl cited their Science comment as
accepted in their manuscript that is now in press in Climatic Change.

Personally I think it is convenient that this clarification gets published but I am
somewhat disapointed by the fact that a very similar content was submitted by Buerger and
Cubasch about one year ago and it was not even sent to reviewers (it is the paper
that finally appeared in Tellus). I think that comment was of much higher quality than Wahl´s.

Science knew of the Tellus paper, since we cite it in our response. So actually
there is scientifically nothing new in this exchange, but it will be published in Science...

Anyway, I am happy to have more time now for more productive work and hope that Ritson
doe not bomb me with more mails in the future
