Instructions for Initial Post

Visit this link:  Spurious Correlations 

In your initial post, choose one of the charts presented and share it in your post (you can download the chart as a jpeg image, and then post it directly into the textbox of your post).

After sharing your chart, provide some initial commentary on the chart. After that you will make two separate arguments:

1. Argue for why there could be a causative link between these two variables. Think of plausible ways they could be connected.

2. Argue for why there is only a correlation between the two variables, and not a causative link at all (this should be the easier argument to make).

Also, be sure to  properly cite the chart you used from the website in the bottom of your initial post.
