Phil, This is weird. I used Web of Knowledge, "create citation report", and added 1999 thru 2009 numbers. Can't do you becoz of the too many PDJs problem. Here are 3 results ... Kevin Trenberth, 9049 Me, 5523 Ben, 2407 The max on their list has only 3365 cites over this period. Analyses like these by people who don't know the field are useless. A good example is Naomi Oreskes work. Tom.

Some of you may remember a paper by Naomi Oreskes in Science that claimed that 100% of the papers about global climate support the "consensus view".
