TIA BS: Where's the Global Warming (1541* d) RE: BS: Where's the Global Warming 21 Jan 11

Now look at that figure with the Jason and Topex data.
Cover it all with your hand (don't smudge the screen) except the last 21 little green dots. Make a conclusion about the Earth's long-term climate trend based on just those 21.
Now, remove your hand and look at the 20 previous years.
Do you see a long-term trend? (yes)
Do you see any other sets of 21 points that if looked at all by themselves indicate falling sea level? (yes)
What happens *after* those 21 you just picked? (rises again)

Which tells us more about Earth's climate; any set of 21 consecutive points you might carefully select, or the entire 20 year time series? (I'll let you answer that one)
