Martinez Lope, GOS Subdirector General of Climate Change, who
will review them with Alicia Montalvo Santamaria, Director
General of Climate Change in the Ministry of Environment,
Rural Development and Marine Affairs. Post has not yet
received a formal response from the Director General or the
GOS regarding support for the U.S. candidate. Although the
Subdirector General is seeking to clarify the Spanish
position with the Director General, the ministry has
officially closed for vacation as of 14:30 on August 1.
Therefore, we may not receive additional information or a
formal expression of support for the USG candidate until the
ministry reopens in late August. Post will forward the GOS'
formal response once received. The GOS Subdirector General
requested USG support for a Spanish candidate seeking
membership in the same IPCC group, Working Group II. Post
has provided the name and details of the Spanish candidate,
Professor Jose Manuel Moreno, to OES/EGC.
