WAISers: Raúl Estrada Oyuela of Argntina
Veteran Argentine diplomat, Ambassador Raúl Estrada-Oyuela, is a WAISer of long standing. We have not heard from him recently because he has been busy with conferences. As one with a special knowledge of the US, he played an important role in the conference on global warming just held in Buenos Aires. Since the US was the odd man pout there, he was able to limit diplomatic warming. TV reports on the conference showed a large chunk of ice breaking off Antarctica. The spectacle would have aroused nostalgia in WAISer Bob Helliwell, well-known to the penguins there. As for me, I just felt smug just sitting in the California sun.
