Feel Good Video: President of Oil-Producing Guyana Slams BBC Interviewer’s Carbon Shaming

Feel Good Video: President of Oil-Producing Guyana Slams BBC Interviewer’s Carbon Shaming

Ali gave a master class on how to respond to the vapid charges that climate cultists make.

The last time we checked on the South American nation of Guyana, a British warship had just arrived to send a message to the countries aggressive neighbor Venezuela (which had voted itself a claim to a huge chunk of Guyana’s oil-rich territories).

Guyana is taking no nonsense from anyone at this point. The country has responded to Venezuela’s planned takeover by making the most of its oil wealth, to better provide materials and options against Venezuela.

Over the past decade, Guyana has found huge amounts of oil and gas under its coastal waters.

It now boasts reserves of about 11 billion barrels.

That puts it in the top 20 in terms of its potential, on a par with countries such as Norway, Brazil and Algeria.

The small country, which borders Venezuela, Brazil and Suriname in South America’s north-east corner, currently boasts the fastest-growing economy in the world.

Recently, BBC journalist Stephen Sackur interviewed the President of Guyana, Mohamed Irfaan Ali. Sackur tried hard to guilt Ali for his nation’s plans to take advantage of its oil wealth using climate change as the rationale for leaving the resource undeveloped.

Ali was having none of the BBC’s net zero nonsense.

“Do you know that Guyana has a forest forever that is the size of England and Scotland combined? A forest that stores 19.5 Gigatons of carbon, a forest that we have kept alive. Does that give you the right to lecture us on climate change.

I am going to lecture you on climate change because we have kept this forest alive. The store’s 19.5 gigatons of carbon that you enjoy, that the world enjoys, that you don’t pay us for, that you don’t value, that you don’t see a value in, that the people of Guyana has kept alive,” Ali countered.

Even as the world lost 65% of its biodiversity in the past 50 years, Ali added, Guyana had managed to keep its ecosystem flourishing.

“Are you valuing it? Are you ready to pay for it? When is developed world is going to pay for it or are you in their pockets? Are you in the pockets of those who have damaged the environment?

Are you in the pockets? Are you and your system in the pockets of those who destroy the environment through the industrial revolution and now lecturing us. Are you in their pockets? Are you paid by them?” he asked.

Ali gave a master class on how to respond to the vapid charges that climate cultists make.

Furthermore, Ali is proving the revenge is a dish best served cold, with fossil fuel gravy.

The border dispute between oil-rich Venezuela and Guyana got a new twist with Guyana exporting more oil than its neighbor for the third straight month.

Guyana’s daily exports were 621,000 barrels in February, higher than Venezuela’s 604,000 barrels, according to vessel movements compiled by Bloomberg.

Venezuela and Guyana have disputed the Essequibo region for nearly a century but tensions escalated after the discovery of massive oil basins in recent years off Guyana’s coast. The country has seen an influx of investments by companies including Exxon Mobil Corp.

I hope the political leaders in this country take note of how to handle the press when it comes to the media’s pseudoscience assertions about “climate change”.

The BBC may want to take a few moments to consider what their own countrymen think of net zero.

Plus… plants love carbon dioxide.

The full interview is here. It’s fun to note that the YouTube comments are turned off.

But the X-comments about the clip are glorious.

Guyana is not releasing the carbon. The countries, whose media dolts conduct such interviews, are buying the oil willingly, and themselves releasing it into the atmosphere.

    The fact is that there is no such thing as AGW. A trace gas in our atmosphere is not driving weather or the climate. I suggest looking at the you tube movie, Climate, The Movie. This summates and refutes all the lies and lays out the political benefits of those pushing the lie.

First world problems…..

Why does britain still pretend to be global power? Guyana is no longer british colony, and has its own black muslim head of state for good or bad. Guyana has negotiated its own deal with Exxon that doesn’t require approval of anybody in britain. The british military has no real capability to defend guyana in the event of blitz by venezuela. Exxon has been working on the assumption that US military would back them up if necessary. Which isn’t safe assumption under dementia joe, who signals weakness and emboldens tyrants and terrorists.

    Another Muslim, can’t be good

    Indeed, the only power that can keep Venezuela from invading Guyana is the U.S., and right now Joe Biden wouldn’t do that. I wonder if the only thing keeping Nicholas Maduro (“Nick the Mad”) from pulling the trigger on an invasion is that his military is completely hollowed out and good only for repressing his own people.

Even if you believes the climate cultists, Guyana isn’t doing anything wrong. They should be protesting India and China first and foremost. Yet they almost always give these two nations a pass.

I’d feel better frankly, if he weren’t Muslim. His response to the BBC is tempered by the fact that I am sure he wants Israel gone.

    Reading the Wiki page:

    Guyana appears to be a true melting pot of a country. The demographics and religion sections of the article make it clear. I’d like to think that the Guyanese have figured it out. We’ll see.

      Eric R. in reply to stevewhitemd. | March 31, 2024 at 2:22 pm

      I am well aware that it is a mix of African, South Asian and Indigenous peoples, but as he is a Muslim, I think we know where he stands on the Jewish people’s right to live.

Diplomatic translation: Britain has hurt feelz because guyana gave the contract to exxon instead of BP.

    Eric R. in reply to smooth. | March 31, 2024 at 12:01 pm

    I disagree. The folks at the BBC are Marxist, Green fanatics. They would be asking this regardless of who won the contract.

The Guyanian President is just arguing that their forests allow them the “leeway” to pump oil”. He doesn’t fight back one bit against the idiotic idea that CO2 emmissions are some sort of “pollution”, only that Guyana has huge forests and, therefore, cannot become a “net emitter” of CO2 as a result of its oil production.

That is not fighting back against the suicidal idiocy of the Global Warming lunatics. The Guyanian President is really taking more of a retarded anti-colonial type stance … poor Guyana.

As far as I can see they are both putrid turds in this interview. Guyana should be pumping as much oil as they can and there is no reason to try and justify it by citing any global warming CO2 stupidity or “poor me” third-worldisms.

    That’s one possibility for sure; another one is that he is simply borrowing their terminology and worldview to argue against it and expose their hypocrisy. Which is the correct understanding of his answer I can’t say. I can’t be bothered to watch the whole video which may allow someone to make a determination. Even if your view is the correct one, we can hope that continued attacks of this kind will “red pill” him and open his eyes to truth.

Mohammed Irfan Ali is One Smart Cookie!

Without raising his voice or letting the British dolt interrupt him, which the dolt constantly attempts because he thinks he’s inherently more clever, ALL of Ali’s points are beautifully made.

Best interview ever!

Always illuminating when the elites reveal the inherent bias behind their propaganda. ‘Oh no third world or second world Nation YOU must not seek to become industrialized nor build modern infrastructure’. When the cult of the climate warrior globalist elites and their useful idiots in the West voluntarily and unilateral give up their own modern 1st world conveniences such as AC, the server farms running the internet, easy access to electricity and the ubiquitous products of daily life made from petroleum then they might be taken more seriously. Until then they are simply hypocritical climate Karens.

May I add that while Britian does not pay for Guyana to maintain its huge forest, other countries. In particular The Netherlands has paid a lot of money to Guyana to slow timber activities and deforestation. Guyana has kept it word and tried very hard to maintain the country in a natural state.

This is perhaps the most important video ever produced with regard to the Climate Change insanity . It needs to be seen by every person on the planet.
