Excellent! Record #Arctic Ice Melt & You | Yale Forum on #Climate Change & The Media

I realise it’s difficult when getting graphs from external sources, but it would help if the axis on the graphs went down to zero. That they don’t stands out, and gives a negative impression. The linear trend overlaid on the second graph is also a bad idea. It’s statistically invalid – the data does not consist of linear trend plus iid Gaussian noise – and it leads the eye to interpret the data in line with the algorithm’s assumptions. Again, for anyone who recognises the technique it gives a bad impression. The fourth graph of arctic temperature change uses a technique discussed here: https://sites.google.com/site/globalwarmingquestions/howtheipccinventedanewcalculus Time series with strong autocorrelation, like weather data, have the property that short segments show apparent systematic offsets and trends, even when no such offset or trend exists. It can be very misleadi...
