Mnuchin advises Greta Thunberg to 'go study' economics

Mnuchin advises Greta Thunberg to 'go study' economics

Climate activist Greta Thunberg, also speaking at this year's Davos, blasted world leaders' climate inaction in an apparent rebuke to a planting pledge made by U.S. President Trump in his speech.

At a press briefing at the World Economic Forum in the Swiss town of Davos, Mnuchin took a swipe at the 17-year-old environmental campaigner for her recommendation that both the public and private sectors should divest from fossil fuels.

Charles has always been ahead of the crowd when it comes to environmental awareness.

Charles, on a positive note, said the world was "further ahead than we might think" in achieving the goal of a profitable but sustainable future, citing developments such as plans for green engines for ships and opportunities to develop commercially viable, hydrogen-powered and electric aircraft within the decade.

Before he left Davos, however, Trump seemed to extend an olive branch, saying he wished he had seen Thunberg speak.

The Prince pledged to conduct a series of climate policy workshops throughout 2020 and suggested he could also attend key global summits throughout the year, including a major gathering of world leaders in Glasgow in November.

Both Greta and the heir to the United Kingdom throne gave speeches, with Greta joining other young climate activists to speak to world leaders on Tuesday.

Mnuchin insisted that USA policy has been misinterpreted, and that Trump "absolutely believes" in a clean environment.

Trump, who is expected to be acquitted by the Republican-controlled Senate, repeatedly called the impeachment trial set to reconvene later Tuesday in Washington a "hoax" shortly before touting his economic achievements in his Davos speech.

"You have another continent where the fumes are rising at levels that you can't believe".

"If we valued our natural capital property, as I've been trying to say for quite a long time, our national and individual balance sheets might look very different indeed".

"There exists a third way between Donald Trump and Greta Thunberg", he told reporters.

Mnuchin joked about Thunberg: "Who is that?"

"There are those who will be out front in the transition and those who lag".
