The Guardian (UK) reports that “oil and gas industry leaders on Friday launched a final charm offensive to highlight the sector’s relevance in the global fight against climate change before a key summit in Paris later this year.”  

“In an unprecedented show of unity, the bosses of Europe’s top oil companies will be joined at a press conference by the heads of the national oil companies of Saudi Arabia and Mexico, who will lend their support to the initiative.”  

“The leaders of 10 gas and oil companies issued a statement calling for an ‘effective’ agreement at the United Nations climate change summit in December, recognising that current greenhouse emissions were inconsistent with the goal of limiting global warming to 2C.”
