Clearly some people do not understand how to read trends
If you had the skills that i have developed over years of analyzing the stock market and watching time series charts then you appreciate my ability to detect abnormal changes in magnitude even though these deviations may be less than one percent of the initial value. I can do this because my internal organs ( my gut) tells me when things are wrong and very few have this gastronomic ability. When a price rises up 1% and i have a vested interest in the value i can tell you absolutely and impartially whether the change was warranted.
Please note the difference between the predictive power and the absolutely unwarranted predictions made by climate scientists who are emotionally involved with their numbers.
