Val weighs 100 cows and gets an average weight of 1,420 pounds (stdev 50)

Question 4

A media personality argues that global temperatures are not rising, because every year an increase is reported such as 0.08 degrees C. The difference from the previous year is less than the margin of error of about 0.15 degrees C, so that difference should be ignored. What is a strong counterargument?

Even 0.08 degrees is a lot and thus should be considered.

The margin of error is just extra information and thus can be ignored.

The difference with any previous decade is much greater than the margin of error.

The results are just barely statistically significant.

The results are strongly statistically significant.
