The Right Review
Posted by Jeff Id on December 6, 2009
I haven’t seen this group highlighted. While not as dramatic as hide the decline it’s pretty plain that those chosen are on the team. It’s hard for me to imagine that Ben Santer would give any warming paper an unbiased review.

Agree with Kevin that Tom Karl has too much to do. Tom Wigley is semi
retired and like Mike Wallace may not be responsive to requests from JGR.
We have Ben Santer in common ! Dave Thompson is a good suggestion.
I’d go for one of Tom Peterson or Dave Easterling.
To get a spread, I’d go with 3 US, One Australian and one in Europe.
So Neville Nicholls and David Parker.
All of them know the sorts of things to say – about our comment and
the awful original, without any prompting.
