Things went bad. Hey Big corporate journalism He has a habit of raising his tone in interviews, as if the interviewee had to bracket his dignity just to take advantage of the “generous space” provided by the network. Even more so if the interviewee is the president of a small country.

But, sometimes, the interviewee does not accept the subject role they are trying to impose on him and subtly attacks him, as party leader. Guyana, Irfan AliThis was during his interview on the program Difficult talkfrom BBCby Lt. Col. Steven Sackur.

Citing reports, Sackur said oil and gas extraction would increase carbon emissions off the coast of Guyana by two billion tons.

“Let me stop you here. Did you know that Guyana's forests are the size of England and Scotland combined? A forest that stores 19.5 gigatonnes of carbon. Forests that we have kept alive.”

Burn oil at will.
