Skewed?
Great idea, but what's the deal with the sudden change in deforrestation if you move the begining timeline slider from year 2000 over to 2001?  Based on the map if you look at the last 12yrs of data vs. the last 13, it seems to indicate MUCH larger rates of tree growth compared to loss...it's as if they compiled all deforrestation data from some time prior to 2000 and took the total loss and rolled it into one year.  Can someone else verify this?
