Dr. Katharine Hayhoe has a knack for crystal clear graphics. She strips away the clutter, so the key point jumps out at you.
This simple graph delivers a knock-out punch to a favorite cherry-picking ploy: “The earth has been cooling since 1998.”
A great picture speaks louder than a thousand words. But not if the main point is smothered with details, as in most scientific slides. This bare-bones beauty speaks for itself, requiring almost no explanation. You can find more great graphics in Hayhoe’s slideshow, “A Climate for Change” (in pdf format), in ClimateBites’ embryonic downloadable graphics/slide library. Have you spotted any other crystal clear, on-target climate graphics lately?
