March 29th, 1995 – Kuwait at first “COP” – oil and gas can’t be blamed…

At the very first “Conference of the Parties” of the Framework Convention on Climate Change, Kuwait produced a climatologist, working for the Oil Ministry, who argued that if global warming was occurring, then oil and coal could not be blamed for it (Guardian, 29 March 1995).

No change there then…
