There are ways to argue against my little analysis if you know what you're doing. You could say I'm using an overly-simple model (That's what I would say.). Or you could say that sunspots are only part of the story. Or you could say that you were using a different time frame and so the two comparisons are not comparable. Or you could say that your pretty chart is based on solar activity estimated from carbon 14 from tree rings (I thought you didn't trust tree rings.) and not on actual sunspot counts and so the two are not exactly comparable.
So why don't you use one of them and at least sound like you know what you're talking about?
P.S.: Your chart does not tell who made it, what datasets he/she used, or provide a reference. How do I know you didn't just make it up? Or did you?
