Mike,
I want to get the more extensive London paper in first.
I hope my missive to the Chief Exec of the RMS does something next week.
By the way the HC doesn't have a Director.
John Mitchell is Head of Climate Science
Chris Gordon is Deputy Director of the HC.
It has never had a Director with that particular title.
It is impossible for anyone to find this on their web site. Only if you
were on the HC Scientific Review Group would you be aware.

Cheers
Phil

HI Phil,
thanks, we've already seen numerous comments about this at RealClimate. Its a paper that
is easily misunderstood and/or intentionally misrepresented by contrarians (or both).
One possibility is that you might consider writing a guest article for RC placing this
in proper perspective. What do you think?

Gavin, Mike,
See the link below! Don't alert anyone up to this for a while. See if they figure it
out for themselves.
I've sent this to the Chief Exec of the RMS, who said he was considering
changing data policy with the RMS journals. He's away till next week. I just
wanted him to see what a load of plonkers he's dealing with! I'm hoping
someone will pick this up and put it somewhere more prominently.
The responses are even worse than you get on CA.
I've written up the London paper for the RMS journal Weather,
but having trouble with their new editor. He's coming up with the same
naive comments that these responders are. He can't understand
that London has a UHI of X, but that X has got no bigger since 1900.
I'm away all next week.
Cheers
Phil
