And the "man in street" need not concern themselves with detailed analysis of complex data and differing interpretations thereof, simple observations of publicly available data will suffice.

New records for heat and drought are set regularly, new records for cold are rare.
Snow cover on most mountains has decreased drastically over the last 50 years. No complex data is needed, simply look at decades old photographs and compare with recent ones.
Glaciers are generally retreating, again no complex study or detailed investigation is needed, simply compare old and new photographs.

Many other examples exist.

Not really. At least the 'bad boy' grapher managed to put units on the scales, while the foaming mouth expert didn't.

Pedant! The units are fairly obvious. It is unlikely the vertical axis refers to degrees centigrade or kelvin. I like the stuff Ugo Bardi does and good for him bringing this article to the attention of more folk.
