Hi Piers,

Thank you very much for undertaking this exercise on behalf of all of
us, and patiently editing it. I am sorry I was not available the whole
of today as I spent the day in Washington in climate change modeling
briefings to a couple of Senators and their staffs. I did not have my
laptop and so could not follow all of the exchanges in 'real-time'. I am
reading all the e-mails of today now (10 PM, Fri night).

I agree with the entire contents of the letter, and here is hoping that
New Scientist will at least pause and reflect on their perpetration.
