We all know that statistics themselves don't lie, but the people who use statistics may intentionally or unintentionally do so. A Tweet late yesterday by Eric Holthaus (@EricHolthaus) was the most recent example to catch my eye. With the Atlantic Ocean region bustling with intense hurricanes at this time, it would be easy for some people to draw an incorrect conclusion from Holthaus' data (Fig. 1) - i.e., that intense hurricane activity is escalating. But that's not necessarily what is happening.
