Downton Abbey Butler Plays Christmas-Cancelling Santa In This Scary Greenpeace Video

Ho ho ho.

Sorry, kids, Christmas is canceled! At least according to this frightening new video from Greenpeace.

The clip features a dirty, bedraggled and beaten down Santa Claus — played by everyone’s favorite butler, Jim Carter of Downton Abbey fame — announcing the end of Christmas due to global warming and oil drilling in the Arctic.

“Dear children I regrettably bring bad tidings,” Santa warns in the video. “For some time now, melting ice here in the North Pole has made our operations and our day-to-day life intolerable and impossible and there may be no alternative but to cancel Christmas.” Santa explains that he wrote letters to world leaders, but no one believed his warning: “Needless to say these individuals are now at the top of my naughty list.”

The video encourages viewers to sign a petition to “Save Santa’s Home.”

What a sick video!  The liberals are now involving children!  Absolutely sick!

The facts actually are is we are having the coldest November in history!  And it is at its coldest in 15 years!  There is 60% more ice this year!  Explain that Greenpeace, now don't bring that up you wont get your followers which in return gives you money!   Why doesn't Greenpeace talk about that!  Absolutely sick that they are targeting children and making them feel bad about Santa and Christmas.  They are targeting children because adults are smart enough to understand this is just another example of an agenda to raise more money to fight their other liberal agendas! 

You should be ashamed of yourselves!  Sick!

Arctic sea ice is declining at an alarming rate :

Not to mention that this year we observed a real Hole at the Pole :

where Arctic sea ice at the North Pole consists of some loose ice foes and open waters for hundreds of miles around,

despite the attempts by climate change deniers that there is nothing unusual (and even "recovery") going on. 


Over the long run, we all know where the Arctic is going :

It is ironic that Greenpeace would release a video of Santa Claus bemoaning the loss of Arctic sea ice in a year when it recovered about 60% from its minimum last year. Santa should be celebrating the return of the ice!
 
Santa must have put out messages like this often in the past, most recently in the 1930s when the ice was probably less than today since the Arctic is believed to have been warmer then. He must have issued even more frightening warnings around 1,000 AD when it was a good deal warmer in the Arctic and the Vikings were sailing in waters than are now covered with pack ice. And he must have really freaked out 6,000 years ago when we were at the warmest period since the end of the last ice age and trees grew hundreds of miles further north than today.
 
If Santa does not like these normal variations in Arctic sea ice cover, then he should move to the South Pole where sea ice has been increasing since measurements began in 1979.

Well, I'm sick of all the none believers.  I would never take serious the canceling of Christmas, but I really admire the way Greenpeace tries to get their point across and hope that some none believers will open their eyes and realize our kids, kids, kids, may never have a chance at some of the beauty that we've experience.  I especially applauded the video that Greenpeace had once done that got banned on the skinning of animals for coats.  Wake up people before the land is ruined and coffee can't grow.

I am sick of the Global Warming hoax.  Give it up already-we know it's a big fat lie.

@TomHarris  

"when it recovered about 60% from its minimum last year."

Mr.Harris, did the ICSC report on last year's record-shattering minimum ?

And did you notice the long-term downtrend in the Arctic sea ice record, despite your "60 %" "recovery" ?

And doesn't the ICSC include such non-partisan advisors as Vivian Forbes and Professor Ian Plimer ? Where Mr Forbes is a director of coal export business Stanmore Coal, and  Professor Ian Plimer is a director of at least five mining companies, including Ormil Energy  ?
