I am taking the liberty (confidentially) to send you a copy of the reviewers comments
(please keep these to yourself) of the last IPCC draft chapter. I am concerned that I am
not as objective as perhaps I should be and would appreciate your take on the comments from
number 6-737 onwards , that relate to your reassessment of the Mann et al work. I have to
consider whether the current text is fair or whether I should change things in the light of
the sceptic comments. In practise this brief version has evolved and there is little scope
for additional text , but I must put on record responses to these comments - any
confidential help , opinions are appreciated . I have only days now to complete this
revision and response.
note that the sub heading 6.6 the last 2000 years
is page 27 line35 on the original (commented) draft.
