Saudi Arabia in climate change

Hey guys its me again artisitc_opinion and today I will be talking about teh postition and the things Saudi Arabia, the country in Asia, has to play in climate change. So lets begin!

What is Saudi Arabia?

Saudi Arabia is a desert country taking over most of the Arabian Peninsula, with Red Sea and Persian (Arabian) Gulf coastlines. Known as the birthplace of Islam, it’s home to the religion’s 2 most sacred mosques: Masjid al-Haram, in Makkah, destination of the annual Hajj pilgrimage, and Madiah's Masjid an-Nabawi, burial site of the prophet Muhammad(S.A.W). Riyadh, the capital, is a skyscraper-filled metropolis.

Who runs Saudi Arabia?

So there is a government of Saudi Arabia, and it is like here. They have a king who signs things and meets with other famous people and political leaders. Saudi Arabia's king is called: Salman Of Saudi Arabia. Did you know, that arabians, like me, call him Ibn Al Salman of Saudi Arab? Now, saudi arabia always has a crown prince. You see a crown prince is the succsessor of the actual king and he takes over after the death of his dad. Women in the Royal Arabian Family do have a place in society but they do not sho there faces that often. If a king has no male heir then he will have to choose a succsesor from hisfamily but not his children. This is why women are newver queens. There are only madames or Princesses. Anyway, you can be a queen but you cannot be from the Royal Arabian Family.

Why does Saudi Arabia have such a big part in climate change?

Saudi Arabia runs a huge oil business. They make a lot of money and one of their most consistant buyer is Donald Trump. Donals Trump trades guns, weaponry and armoury for oil. Did you know, that a few years ago bought a lot of oil for more that £3 billion? Saudi Arabia dig deep underground, in mines and under the oceans for oils. This takes a lot of time. Effort. Money. And it takes a lot og CO2. CO2 is produced when they dig for the oil and when theycollect the oil.

    Thanks for sharing your Final piece. It's interesting to hear the prior knowledge you have about Saudi Arabia and I can see why you'd be interested in the part it plays in climate change. I removed a couple of pictures which we do not have the rights to use.
    Why do you think Saudi Arabia might not want to stop producing and trading oil? Do you think this is fair?

    I think that Saudi Arabia will not want to be stopping because this is where they get billions upon billions of money from and if they stop they could be a financial crisis? I think from there prospect it would not be fair because this is how they gain money and they will defend it no matter what. However, in my aspect they should becasue they are feeding climate change.
