The Perfect Cherry Picking Example from Climate Change

This is just gold. Cherry picking is taking on small bits of data that prove your case and ignoring other data that does not. Climate change denialists love to do this. Here's Monkton 'proving' that the ice at the Arctic is not melting...

It's a slam dunk, yes? Lets plot those data points in Monkton's pretty pictures into a graph..

And now fill in the missing bits of data Monkton decided not to show us...

Ooops. Just goes to show that there are lies, damn lies and statistics Monkton.
