There has been extensive coverage of our research in the National Post, a leading Canadian newspaper, over the last few days. The entire article from Natuurwetenschap & Techniek was re-printed in two installments, together with a National Post editorial, all of which are online:
There have been many letters to the editors, most of which are not online. Some of the letters have been from scientists, including a professor of plant science who expressed serious concerns about the use of tree ring widths as a means of coming to confident conclusions about temperature history.
On a personal basis, this coverage has been very gratifying, since my friends and family are not academics and being covered in the National Post seems much more tangible to them than publication in Geophysical Research Letters.
