BEST Cherry Picking
The Berkeley Earth Surface Temperature (BEST) project analyzed surface temperature records and provided yet another confirmation of the many surface and satellite temperature records that show global warming continues unabated. This graphic illustrates how certain global warming "skeptics" still attempt to use the BEST record to argue that global warming has stopped, which they do by "cherry-picking" only the short recent time period from the full record in order to "hide the incline" in global surface temperature.
