"Creating a Smoke
Screen over OPEC's Environmental Stance,"
OPEC Bull., 26(2), 3, Feb. 1995.
An unsigned editorial responding to an apparently orchestrated sequence of
press reports, published prior to the Berlin Conference, that contained a number
of incorrect and damaging allegations about OPEC's position on global
environmental issues. OPEC was claimed, for example, to be "determined to
sabotage the [climate] conference." The response, made here because the
press did not at any time contact OPEC for its comments, concludes that only by
raising standards of living through sustainable development can environmental
improvements be safeguarded.
