Soon after being assigned this project, I had a rough idea of my goals for the final product. As I said before, I chose this particular topic because of its controversial nature, and because of the extensive “lying” that is already prevalent in debates on it. The data I used is not uncommon, generally known as the “Global Land-Ocean Temperature Index”. In graphs illustrating this data, the vertical axis values are generally understood to be the single year average minus the base period average, resulting in an upward trend that indicates increasing average yearly temperatures. I wondered if I could somehow use the same data to mislead people into interpreting the opposite, that temperatures are actually decreasing from year to year.
