I am so goddam sick of hearing this regurgitated bullocks time and time again. It blows my mind that people still don't understand or aren't willing to research how NOAA comes up with this drivel.

That is Still up for Debate about the Real Cause for that isn't there ? So , your Point is >?
There is a Great Discrepancy between Satellite Recorded Earth Temperatures and Surface Recorded Temperatures . Why is there such a Divergence between them ?
Yes. But that's not really part of any plan.
Just deciding to stop using them would create a drastic reordering of society, top to bottom.
And we don't have the replacements for nearly all of those things and they are integrated into more areas of our lives than most people realize.
The problem is not making things out of petroleum. The problem is burning petroleum. Actually, burning it is pretty wasteful, never mind the CO2 it produces.
But hey! I'm sure no one needs all those nifty little plastic do-dads that make, for example, complex surgeries and other medical procedures sterile ... or industrial lubricants ... any of those other things no one thinks about when they advocate the complete abandonment of fossil fuels.

Well I don't know but it seems to me that if you look around, you'll see an awful lot of things, very necessary things, that are dependent on our use of fossil fuels, and I'm not talking about the things that are dependent on the energy. It's not just a matter of coming up for a replacement for the energy but also for all the other things in our lives that are dependent on petroleum and other fossil fuels.

Global warming happens when an Ice Age wasn't all that long ago, relatively speaking. ...not to mention a mini-ice age of sorts within historical time periods.
We'll adapt, as there's not a hell of a lot we can do about it...

Is that the graph that does away with any GW hiatus
Do you know how to read a graph?
an honest reply and I am wondering,,,volcanoes are heat producing engines..

So who would that be?
That is what I am asking.
Who would decide if the data is disputed or not?
This is just one station that showed a cooling trend in which NOAA adjusted to make a warming trend.
