Normal orientation

From Global Warming Art

Normal orientation refers to the practice of plotting the time axis of a figure in left-to-right orientation so that the most recent data, that appearing on the right hand side, is emphasized. In English (and other languages with a left-to-right orientation), this orientation reflects the natural flow of information. This is contrasted against paleo orientation where time is plotted right-to-left so as to emphasize the importance of the past.
