News Alert: Global Warming Caused By Mexican Lemons

This is a wonderful example to show mathematical and statistical illiterates that is not a good idea to take graphs at face value without understand the data and math behind them: I’ve seen a lot shakier plots used to justify some sweeping conclusions, and if those were justified, well, then I’m forced to conclude that Mexican lemons […]
