Is it a coincidence that, when you look at the Wikipedia article for Cherry Picking, it contains the following:

'Cherry-picking is often used in science denial such as climate change denial. For example, by deliberately cherry picking appropriate time periods, here 19982012, an artificial "pause" can be created, even when there is an ongoing warming trend'

Oddly enough I just received the latest Safety Fast and having a quick flick through I think I saw in the Speed Championship pages a picture of a EV MG being put through its paces.

yes , that is quite a good example of Wiki s lying .

But sometimes the cherry - picking is almost explainable . Like when they mention Arctic sea ice and use Satellite info for it .
Satellites have only been about since 1978 , so is a good start time for them as that was when the world was warming up again from the 60s cold spell .
You remember Arctic sea ice , it was predicted to be all gone by many years ago , and now by mid summer , there is only 11 Million Square Kilometers of it left .
So the average area did reduce from 78 through until about 2012 , but is now increasing again .
But if you take the figures from 100 years ago , then overall it starts from a much smaller area than has been seen since .So the average amount has increased .
The 1930s were a much warmer time than now so Ice Levels in Greenland & the Arctic were much smaller .

So which example of those is Cherry Picking .

Ok, we are sooo far away from the original intent of the topic I'm closing it.
