I like too.

Figures 1 and 2 have good content, but are a bit too cartoony to my eye - they lack gravitas or something like that.

My feeling is that they would be better done as proper graphs. Would it be more convincing if you use an AR(1) or ARMA(1,1) noise model instead of a sine-wave?

I might be able to generate some data with realistic trend and noise if that would help. (Or Tamino has done it before).

They're cartoony alright (I'm just dabbling with creating graphics). The point was to get a simple message across, but I don't know if there's time to amend - I asked Dana to publish this in the morning (8-10 hrs from now).

John posted his new heat accumulation graphic last night, which I'd like to keep featured on the front page for a bit.  So if you've got time, feel free to amend the graphics in the meantime.  We can publish this one later today.

I'd be happy to help with the illustrations, but I also think it's personally rewarding to do one's own graphics, so I don't want to take that opportunity away from anyone. The illustrations work, but the colors and line quality could be tweaked a little. I could also send you some arrows to use.

Cartoonly or not the figures should have time (I assume) labeled on the x-axis.

Else I like it!

thumbs up from me. The added precipitation during la nina creates a short-lived cool layer on top of the ocean, the water sinks through the warm ocean surface layer taking some of the heat down? so the areas of heat sinking would be the with above normal precipitation and ocean surface temps? heh, a question to ask of someone like Isaac Held, and then get an answer that's so technical it goes over my head.
