1. it all depends

upon the time parameters of the analysis.

if you take the narrow view, the spike can be interpreted as mighty troubling.
if you take a broader view, the uptick is more an outlying data point from the overall trend (after all trend slopes are never perfectly straight lines).

which view and interpretation one takes can be a clear indicator of one's bias and ideology.
