The global Argo dataset is not yet long enough to observe global change signals. Seasonal and interannual variability dominate the present 10-year globally-averaged time series. Sparse global sampling during 2004-2005 can lead to substantial differences in statistical analyses of ocean temperature and trend (or steric sea level and its trend, e.g. Leuliette and Miller, 2009). Analyses of decadal changes presently focus on comparison of Argo to sparse and sometimes inaccurate historical data. Argo's greatest contributions to observing the global oceans are still in the future, but its global span is clearly transforming the capability to observe climate-related changes.

Sustainability (along with self-reliance) is a major concern for me.
(a) car represents advanced technology and requires multiple methods of assistance from outside sources which I cannot provide on my own.
...I know others tend to use machinery only as conveniences and try to minimize dependence on them. Is it possible that the political divide, as well as the Global Warming controversy, is rooted in a battle between dependency and independency?
Problem is it doesn't make enough money.. And it doesn't fill the pockets of the greedy 1% elites..

If we had an energy alternative that outperformed nuclear, oil, and coal energy--on top of outputting cleaner emissions, requiring less input, and being more cost effective--people would flock to purchase such a thing.
There would be tons of money to be made from a legitimate alternative.

Another important point is that the sun has not really been taken into account in the models (many of which pick and choose data to support a predetermined conclusion) rendering them incomplete and wrong.

Sorry to break it to you...
...There is no denying AGW.
This latest adjustment is the sole reason why our "scientists" are able to declare 2016 as the "HOTTEST YEAR, EVAH."
Based upon this chart, as we enter the home stretch, it looks increasingly like 2016 might be a new record-warm year (since the satellite record began in 1979) in the UAH dataset.

a reply to: pikestaff yes and a longer growing season- Its all about the suns variable energy output- we are entering a period of decreased solar activity and will start to feel the chill soon enough. Co2 levels 400ppm now-the dinosaurs built strong bodies with Co2 levels of 7000ppm Why not address a real problem like Fukushima? oh cant make any money there.
