I don't see a forest. I just see a drawing of a forest. Maybe in a couple decades it will be a forest. Right now probably just saplings.

Please accept "carbon" for carbon dioxide, since the generally used phrase is just "carbon emissions."

carbon and carbon dioxide aren't synonyms. I tried carbon first aswell, but it doesn't take much thinking to just say the full name instead.

I lived here since 1992. Absolutely never heard of some one being lashed for drinking alcohol. In fact I was personally drinking out in public just 2 days ago with no repercussion?

Please remove this part it is false.

Check this out before going out for another drink:

"The government interprets sharia as allowing corporal punishment for certain criminal offenses, including court-ordered flogging in cases of alcohol consumption and extramarital sex by Muslims. Courts typically reduced sentences to imprisonment or a fine. The Supreme Judicial Council reported six convictions that resulted in flogging sentences in 2018."

oil and natural gas are not the same thing. is the question suggesting they are both biggest exports, depending on how you count it? maybe you should pick one, or it should be clearer why both are there

I knew it likely wouldn’t be accepted, but I still did try putting “oryx” for the animal question. An “Arabian Oryx” must logically be a type of oryx, after all! 🤣
