Global warming is, in my humble opinion, man-made. I mean if you think about it, the reason why we have it in the first place is our unrestrained pursuit of riches and advancement without due regard to environmental preservation.
5 million deaths a year caused by global climate related abnormal temps. The world's largest study of global climate related mortality found deaths related to hot temperatures increased in all regions from 2000 to 2019, indicating that global warming due to climate change will make this mortality figure worse in the future. The international research team looked at mortality and temperature data across the world from 2000 to 2019, a period when global temperatures rose by 0.26C per decade. Source 5a.
I'd respectfully disagree for the most part, I feel that we are simply going through yet another time in the existence of our planet that the climate is having a major shift. I would admit we might be contributing to it in a very small amount, however not to the degree as everyone concerned about it seems to think.
Has our distance from the sun decreased? A plausible reason as even a tiny shift in the earth's position could have drastic changes. Has the sun itself expanded at all, bringing it closer to us?
