Arabian Chutzpah

Text settings

No matter what you think of global warming, I think this qualifies as chutzpah:

Saudi Arabia is trying to enlist other oil-producing countries to support a provocative idea: if wealthy countries reduce their oil consumption to combat global warming, they should pay compensation to oil producers.

Good luck with that.
