Did they ever fit together? Most ridiculous thing I ever heard. :-)
I find this graph by David Archibald stunning. Relevant posts at climate realist websites:
Watts: Archibald posts this graph
Climate Audit: Holgate on sea level
Watts: Sea level and Jason data
The graph shows a remarkably accurate correlation between the number of sun spots - following the approximately 11-year solar cycle - and the annual sea level rise in millimeters.
