I thank the distinguished academician K. Ya. Kondratyev for his “great interest” in my paper and find myself in substantial agreement with many of his comments. In particular, I agree that contemporary scientists and policy makers can benefit from a critical study of the history of science. While Kondratyev's focus is on “the more important and difficult task” of improving climate modeling and assessment, my work focuses on the past, which I discuss in greater detail in my book, Historical Perspectives on Climate Change (Oxford, 1998).
