Ivanka Trump Refused to Echo Her Father’s Criticism of Greta Thunberg

"Is she the chief economist or who is she?".

'After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us, ' he concluded.

Swedish climate worrier Greta Thunberg held a press conference in Davos, Switzerland, on Friday and complained the climate movement's demands (on fossil fuel divestment) have been "completely ignored" this week by attendees at the World Economic Forum.

"Time is pressing, so we - the older ones, I am 65 years old - must make sure that we take the impatience of young people positively and constructively", Ms Merkel said in her speech to the WEF's annual meeting.

Mnuchin, at the World Economic Forum in Davos, questioned Thunberg's ability to comment on fossil fuels.

Other netizens sided with the Secretary of the Treasury and opined that the 17-year-old is used by left-wing parties to push through their agenda.

Cape Town - Prince Charles has made climate change his mission - much like Greta Thunberg.

Many netizens challenged Thunberg on her claim that fossil fuels are damaging to the climate, saying the information she provided is inaccurate.

Who is most likely to catch China's coronavirus?

"Let's be clear: We don't need a 'low-carbon economy, ' we don't need to 'lower emissions, ' " Thunberg said Tuesday. "Who is she? I'm confused", said Mnuchin.

"It's Economics 101 that tells us that when there is a difference between private costs and costs to society, that difference ought to be included in one's decision-making", [economist Gernot] Wagner said.

As she did last month when President Donald Trump said she should work on her "anger management problem", Thunberg responded to Mnuchin in kind on Twitter Thursday morning.

After Trump specified the US had actually dedicated to signing up with the one trillion tree effort, Thunberg addressed back that repairing the environment crisis was not nearly trees. "We couldn't care less about your party politics".

"There is a real misinterpretation of the United States policy".

Davos high school students with signs reading "wake up WEF" and "stop (f) lying to us" chanted in the hope that they would be loud enough for the business leaders and politicians to listen.

But at least now I know that it won't happen to any other African climate activist! "On the very first day ahead, we have struck for real climate actions".
