... and not so trustworthy.
According to NASA(as of 2000), the average temperature in the US was on a decline from 1940-2000.

So, in 2000, we found that prior to 1940 there was a year where the temperatures were 1.5 degrees higher than the mean, and 2000 was 0.9 degrees higher than the mean.
Now though, the image is different. The year prior to 1940 is now reported as 1.2 degrees higher than the mean, and the 2000 temperature is reported as 1.3 degrees higher than the mean.

So, if we overlay the two, we find some interesting changes to the temperature graph in the last 12 years. The red line is the 'new' temperature, where the temperature is lowered from 1940 on, and raised in recent years, to make Global Warming more of a crisis.

I'm confused. I've read and heard arguments that global warming is really just part of a natural temperature change process for the earth. I've also read that it's completely man-made? Is it one or both of these? Please explain.

Recent studies indicate that even if the Paris Accords are successful, Sydney may find itself with temperatures of 50 degrees (122F). "Major Australian cities, such as Sydney and Melbourne, may experience unprecedented temperatures of 50 degrees Celsius under 2 degrees of global...
