On Christmas Day in 1914, WW1 soldiers spontaneously put down their weapons, celebrated together, and shared rations.
Quote
Although some men held back, the Christmas Truce still delivered an unambiguous message to the world that the ideal of a universal humanity, along with basic values like human kindness, had not yet fallen victim to the war. The war would continue, but that declaration would not be effaced, lasting until the present day.

May you have a joyous holiday season, Gentle Readers.

The Onion reports on the state of climate change denial.  (Satire.)

Report: Climate Change Skeptics Could Reach Catastrophic Levels By 2020
Quote
WASHINGTON—In a worrying development that could have dire implications for the health of the planet, a report published Wednesday by the Environmental Protection Agency suggests that the number of climate change skeptics could reach catastrophic levels by the year 2020.

According to the agency’s findings, the rising quantity and concentration of individuals who willfully deny or downplay the ruinous impact of the ongoing climate crisis will no longer be manageable by the end of the decade, leading to disastrous consequences for global ecosystems that may well prove irreversible.

Why it's good to laugh at climate change.
Quote
While climate change itself is never going to be a barrel of laughs, we seem to be suffering from a collective lack of imagination in teasing out the tragi-comic narratives that climate change surely provides.

Thinking harder about how to plug climate change into our cultural circuits – not as ‘edutainment’ but simply as a target of satire in its own right – will be crucial in overcoming the social silence around the issue. The science-communicators don’t seem to be making much progress with the public: maybe its time to let the comedians have their turn.

Executive Order to "streamline" U.S. Arctic research:
 
Quote
President Barack Obama issued an executive order aimed at “Enhancing Coordination of National Efforts in the Arctic.” Significantly, the order “establishes an ‘Arctic Executive Steering Committee’ to guide federal policy and coordinate with state, local, Native governments, research and academic institutions and nonprofit organizations” (AD).

More quotes:

The Arctic has critical long-term strategic, ecological, cultural, and economic value, and it is imperative that we continue to protect our national interests in the region, which include: national defense; sovereign rights and responsibilities; maritime safety; energy and economic benefits; environmental stewardship; promotion of science and research; and preservation of the rights, freedoms, and uses of the sea as reflected in international law.

There is established an Arctic Executive Steering Committee (Steering Committee), which shall provide guidance to executive departments and agencies (agencies) and enhance coordination of Federal Arctic policies across agencies and offices, and, where applicable, with State, local, and Alaska Native tribal governments and similar Alaska Native organizations, academic and research institutions, and the private and nonprofit sectors.

The Steering Committee shall consist of:
...
(iii) the Deputy Secretary or equivalent officer from the Departments of State, Defense, Justice, the Interior, Agriculture, Commerce, Labor, Health and Human Services, Transportation, Energy, and Homeland Security; the Office of the Director of National Intelligence; the Environmental Protection Agency; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration; the National Science Foundation; the Arctic Research Commission; and the Office of Management and Budget; the Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, or his or her designee; and other agencies or offices as determined appropriate by the Chair.

(d) invite members of State, local, and Alaska Native tribal governments and similar Alaska Native organizations, and academic and research institutions to consult on issues or participate in discussions, as appropriate and consistent with applicable law.

BARACK OBAMA

THE WHITE HOUSE,
January 21, 2015.

“Arctic oil is incommensurate with 2ºC target"

Of course it is. Everyone understands that, but nobody cares.

During crisis hearings (government climate policy lies) in parliament in 2013, a former minister of the Norwegian government revealed the 2ºC target was already forsaken. The statement was never ever repeated or commented upon by anyone, of course, as this was a slip of the tongue as well as unpleasant information, causing "dark thoughts", as the Labour PM candidate recently put it.
