Peck--Thanks. The big issue may be that you don't just have to convince me now; if the NRC committee comes out as being strongly negative on the hockey stick owing to RD'A's talk, then the divergence between IPCC and NRC will be a big deal in the future regardless. The NRC committee is accepting comments now (I don't know for how long)... As I noted, my observations of the NRC committee members suggest rather strongly to me that they now have serious doubts about tree-rings as paleothermometers (and I do, least until someone shows me why this divergence problem really doesn't matter). --Richard
