Sir David Frederick Attenbourough GWA

Sir David Frederick Attenborough OM CH CVO CBE FRS FZS FSA speaks for "all human beings":

The naturalist said that it was "silly" to play down the issue of climate change in an interview with Sky News.
The 88-year-old said: Wherever you look there are huge risks. The awful thing is that the people in authority and power deny that when the evidence is overwhelming. 
"They deny it because it's easier to deny it.
"It's a very major, serious problem facing humanity but at the same time it would be silly to minimise the size of the problem.
"Never in the history of humanity in the last 10 million years have all human beings got together to face one danger that threatens us.
"It's a big ask but the penalty of not taking notice is huge."
One essential letter combination is missing from Sir David´s already impressive list  - GWA (for global warming alarmist).

The EU´s foreign policy chief ready for appeasement with Russia

The EU´s foreign policy chief, Italian Federica Mogherini, appears to be ready for appeasement with regard to Putin´s Russia. Hopefully Mrs Merkel will stop her!

BRUSSELS - Federica Mogherini, the EU’s foreign policy chief, has said the bloc should launch a new “debate” with Russia aimed at ending the “confrontation” over Ukraine.
She told Italy’s La Repubblica daily on Saturday (27 December): “The current situation is very difficult for Russia. It would be in its interest to contribute to ending the conflict. At the same time, we all know that Russia plays an important role not only in Ukraine, but also in Syria, Iran, the Middle East, Libya”.
“We have to open a direct debate with Moscow on our mutual relations and the role that Russia can play in other crises”.
She noted that Ukraine and the US also want a way out.
