First off, pirates being on the lower axis does not automatically mean its a function of pirates, anybody can switch axises.
Now take a look at the axis with pirates, it goes 35000 45000 then 20000, while the temperature is constantly rising. going up then going down. you see it now? see why the implication is mathematically contradicted? no?
ok, for this to be a function of pirates, for every given number of pirates there has to be a unique value of temperature. However in this graph this is obviously not the case, because for the same number of pirates you have two different values of temperature. So it is mathematically impossible for this graph to be a function of pirates with temperature being inversely proportional to the number of pirates
The graphs's primary implication (less pirates->higher temperature) might be interesting to the naive eye, however it is mathematically impossible. I myself would have found it interesting if it wasn't for it going against maths.
just say the graph is wrong
To err is human, to forgive, divine. Humans aren't machines... they have souls, feelings. They live, they die, they love, they hate... And yes, they even make mistakes.....

He who fights with monsters should look to it that he himself does not become a monster. And when you gaze long into an abyss the abyss also gazes into you.
Two things are infinite: the universe and human stupidity; and I'm not sure about the the universe.

Being Malaysian is about driving in a German car to an Indian restaurant for an Indonesian food, then travelling home, grabbing a Pakistani kebab on the way, to sit on Swedish furniture and watch American shows on a Japanese TV. Because we have no originality.
