Psychopathic charts, lines that should be bars, and picking cherries
I was hoping to withdraw from the world during the Summer and devote time to activities that require deep concentration—reading, writing, designing, and also this,—but it seems that the run-up to the November election will bring a deluge of bad charts. I should have known better; How Charts Lie may need a sequel soon.

Aw fuck it


This map shows the number of tree species present in any location.

Wrong

This map shows the number of endemic tree species present in any location.

Better


This map shows the number of endemic tree species present in any location. Local areas of greater diversity are not shown due to the scale of the map.


Scientific in its description of the graphic

Perhaps periods of drought correlate with assassinations?

But I imagine it's a spurious correlation
