Well, by paying my taxes I have funded the experts at GISS to [record the temperature]. They work for me (and you) and that gives us the right and duty to comment on their work. And, it is not the temperature record that I doubt (that much) but the fact the same 1934 data record, in hand from before I was born, can be analyzed and re-analyzed seven times to get swings 20% to 30% of what they claim to be measuring. And the same 1998 record taken by modern instruments a bit over a decade ago, is also subject to even larger swings as they repeatedly analyze it. If your tailor made you a tie that was 20% too short, along with a shirt that was 30% too long, would you trust him to do a whole suit?

My conjecture is that while there is an increase because people are looking for it and there is a higher chance of detection, I think that ADHD's root cause is the amount of different information we make our children look at in the course of their development. IE There is significantly more stimuli coming from computers television and the like now and the speed at which they change 2 minute you tube videos, 100s of television channels, versus a radio some tapes and 6 television channels in our parents day. By increasing the amount of ways people can gain information and entertain themselves I believe that causes the brain to compensate for the increased demand for differentiation during development.
