I'll reckon you'll have to go over the top to get Nature to send this out for review. One way of doing this would be to add in some quick analyses of the residual global mean series. for recent years. Only a few sentences. Basically to show that years like 2005 and others in the period 2002-2007 are after extraction warmer than 1998. Maybe also over 1997/8 to 2007 show the trend. I know this is somewhat silly, but there is a lot of rubbish on web sites about global warming stopping. Maybe just rank the top ten years in the residual series. This might give it more appeal, but not detract from the main 1945 message.
