This is 20 times the entire global aid budget, more than 30 times the budgets of all multilateral development banks combined, and 40 times the $100bn a year promised in 2009 for poor countries to help cut their greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of the climate crisis.'

'Global flaring is also a major source of the planet-warming greenhouse gases CO2 and methane.'

When this lie collapsed, they came with the next lie (called )
