Graphics have a prominent place in reports such as those produced periodically by the International Panel on Climate Change. This talk will pull examples from these reports. We'll discuss the message that is being communicated and how it might be read from the graphic, along with alternative ways to present the data to communicate the same (or different) message. We will also look at other data collected to examine climate change, using new interactive plots in the cranvas package now available in R.
