Yasir O. Al-Rumayyan recent participated in session at the FII ‘Priority’ forum in the U.S. Here’s some of what he had to say.


You cannot say the fossil fuel industry is evil and bad for the world because, without it, the world would stop moving.


The agriculture sector emits a lot of carbon dioxide. Does that mean that agriculture is an evil thing? Of course not, but we should find the right solutions to mitigate these risks.


We would always like to base our decisions on the evidence in addition to the opinions, instead of coming with a pre-set mind or an ideology and saying this is bad and this is good.
