The Level is in the Details by Michael Mixon, Seagate

The story of climate change in the United States over the last 100+ years - specifically the level by which temperatures are rising (or not) - is a story told across millions and billions of data points.

Viewing the data through an aggregated national trend smooths out much of the actual underlying movement and suggests a potentially misleading stability.

If, instead, you drill down and look at how the data is recorded at individual monitoring stations across all 50 states, we see a far more worrisome trend emerge, namely a marked increase in record-high temperature levels over the last few decades.
