The Al Jazeera interviewer comes up with the usual criticisms of Trump, of how he is letting the world down, etc etc.

CO2 emissions per capita in Qatar are actually the highest in the world, more than three times the US.

It’s only contribution to the fight against global warming, it appears, is that it has been exporting LNG!
