Derek, you might find what you're lookinf for here -
An image bouncing round the warmist Twitterati from Peter Gleick. The gist is - environmental rules don't cause economic loss. Proves yet again that warmists don't understand scale. You can't compare minor engineering or lifestyle changes to removing the bedrock of progress since the beginning of the Industrial revolution.
Article on the BBC regarding a reduction in the Excess Winter Mortality in England and Wales to the lowest levels since records began in 1950/51:
Notes that this was due to milder winter. Do ONS do an excess summer mortality?
Entropic manDid you read a different comment from the one I did? The John Shade comment seems neutral and non-committal to me.
Short memory, John?
I recall a similar fuss when sceptics were compared with Nazis and similar angry denials that sceptics are involved in conspiracies with the Koch brothers, the Heartland Institute, the Tea Party, the military/industrial complex or (Insert your preferred bogeyman).
Sauce for the goose, sir.

It's not all doom and gloom! For example:
"ferdberple November 27, 2014 at 7:19 amThe oil sands in Alberta are one of the largest natural oil spills on the planet. When the Rockies were formed along what is now the BC – Alberta border, the oil was squeezed out and drained into the sands on the plains of Alberta. Over thousands and millions of years this oil has degraded due to exposure to the environment until today it is heavy oil, mistakenly referred to as tar.
The oil sands recovery projects ongoing on Alberta are removing this heavy oil and returning the sand – cleaner than it was. The governments of Alberta and Canada, along with the oil industry are keenly aware of the environmental issues and are applying lessons learned each year to minimize the impact while bringing enormous prosperity to the people of Alberta and Canada."

Phew! And phew! again. I've just been over at WUWT where a mighty stushie has been raised by Betts and Edwards taking issue with a post by Ball. I've been reading the comments and they are often fraught and heartfelt, angry or bitter. I've not seen the post by Ball and I have no intention of doing so until tomorrow. I'm going to have some sleep first.
World Is Locked into ~1.5°C Warming & Risks Are Rising, New Climate Report Finds
November 23, 2014
Turn Down the Heat
Turn Down the Heat: Confronting the New Climate Normal is the third in a series of reports commissioned by the World Bank Group from the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research and Climate Analytics. The first report looked at risks globally if the world were to warm by 4°C. The second report focused on three regions – Africa, South Asia, and South East Asia – and the risks to food security, water security, and low-lying cities exposed to dangerous sea level rise and vulnerability to storms.
The new report comes on the heels of strong new warnings from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) about the pace of climate change and the energy transformations necessary to stay within 2°C warming
"Today’s report confirms what scientists have been saying – past emissions have set an unavoidable course of warming over the next two decades, which will affect the world’s poorest and most vulnerable people the most. We cannot continue down the current path of unchecked, growing emissions."
