'Is she the chief economist? During his speech at the recent economic forum in Davos, the United States leader said: "To embrace the possibilities of tomorrow we must reject the perennial prophets of doom", in a veiled jab at Thunberg.
Greta Thunberg delivered a fiery speech to the world's elite at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, escalating her message that world leaders needs to step up their efforts to fight climate change before it's too late.
"We donâ€™t want these things done by 2050, 2030 or even 2021, we want this done now", she said.
"If we cared about that, we would not be able to do what we do. We put ourselves in the spotlight", she added.
As long as the science is being ignored, and as long as the facts are not being taken into account, leaders can continue to ignore the situation, Thunberg continued.
While delivering a keynote address at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Charles (71) urged governments and businesses to aid the private sector in leading the "world out of approaching catastrophe", the Daily Mail reports. "Obviously, those demands have been completely ignored".
Mnuchin also said, joking about the 17-year-old climate activist: "Who is that?"
They said they'd noticed a "discourse change" at the WEF.
"That is, naturally, great, but we have never struck for discourse change", said Neubauer.
"From the first day we aimed for effective climate action".
When asked about Thunberg's call for public and private sector investors to divest from fossil fuel companies, Mnuchin responded with a flippant "Who?"
"This obviously has no effect".
Greta Thunberg has been forced to defend herself against yet another dismissive remark from a public figure, this time a member of US President Donald Trump's administration.
He said that the reason the U.S. has left the Paris climate agreement - calling for blocking global warming at well below 2 ° C and if possible at 1.5 ° C - "was not because we environment (but because) we thought it was not a fair and balanced agreement".
Speaking to reporters from Davos on Tuesday, Trump said he didn't "really know anything about her" and described her as "very angry".
