The Temperature vs Pirate Population chart presents nearly interesting, but not nearly conclusive data, open to (at least 5) differing interpretations:
1. Pirates favour colder temperatures, and a warming climate causes a decline in their numbers.
2. Pirates cause colder temperatures, and their declining numbers has allowed a warming climate.
3. The 2 data sets are unrelated, and meaningless.
4. The 2 data sets are partially related, and require ďartfulĒ interpretation .
5. I donít understand the data.

Gord,
I can understand interpretations 1,2&5, but 3 and 4 are simply irrelavent. I think that questioning the validity of the data is a lost cause. I beleive this for one reason and one reason only. This is a graph with lots of very large numbers and lines that are very intimidating. I personally know that I could not have generated this graph and therefore the person who did is a lot smarter than I am. If a person with enough intelligence to create such a pretty graph says that there is a correlation then who are we to disagree?
