A tale of climate change (A tale of immigration part 2)

I thought how about the last 6 years, to see if older data was not erroneously affecting later data (the rationale for the Heartland graph). I used the same data and I used to same regression method. I even adopted the exact same way of showing the trend line and the explained variance (r2). So methodologically speaking, we are now adopting the exact same method using the same data. I even put a statement in; exactly like the original graph. Have a look at the resulting figure below.
