We issued the press release at 3:40 p.m. EDT Monday, July 7. It was sent to 900 science writers worldwide on our distribution list and posted on EurekAlert!, the AAAS web site for science press releases.
Almost immediately, we received requests for the full article from The New York Times, USA Today, National Public Radio, Toronto Star, San Jose Mercury News, Cox Newspapers, Richmond Times-Dispatch, and four freelancers. It was too late for most Europeans to receive the release Monday, so we expect additional requests Tuesday morning.
Thanks to all for your help.

When it comes out I would hope that AGU/EOS 'publicity machine' will shout the message from rooftops everywhere. [Phil Jones]
