Abstract: The goal of this paper is to deliver to the reader a large number of graphs in order to allow him/her to choose the ones that he/she considers important to form his/her own opinion. Graphs from data are more important than statements which are mainly interpretation and political, but the problem is that the data is fairly unreliable.
