Can anybody find me more information on this. I find the whole "AmericaElects"/"AmericansElect" thing very suspicious.

Mostly I'm objecting to the use of a histogram with a per time unit. I could reasonably present either data set in that graph in terms of Gb or Gb/a and since the steps of the graph are yearly, one can use the same values.
