Prince Charles has met with Greta Thunberg after making a speech in which he warned that environmental issues are the "greatest threats humanity has ever faced".

The two were introduced shortly after the Prince of Wales' powerful speech at the event, held in Davos, Switzerland, in which he said a "paradigm shift" was required to change the way people are now handling the looming climate change crisis.

The president spoke to reporters as he wrapped up his visit to the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland.

The Prince of Wales has described teenage activist Greta Thunberg as "remarkable", after telling world leaders "we simply can not waste any more time" in the battle to save the planet.

Charles travelled from St Gallen in Switzerland to Davos in a fully electric Jaguar I-Pace, rather than using a helicopter.

In her address Greta Thunberg called on world leaders to abandon fossil fuels in order to "save the world".

Climate is now a "hot topic because of young people pushing" but "nothing has been done [because] global emissions of carbon have not been reduced", Thunberg said in remarks on Tuesday.

The WEF has brought together an estimated 3,000 business leaders, heads of state, investors, and others considered to be among the global elite. "We support a clean environment we just think it can be done in a way that is pro-business", he said.

"This is why I need your help, your ingenuity and your practical skills to ensure that the private sector leads the world out of the approaching catastrophe into which we have engineered ourselves".

The Prince also told how his sons, the Duke of Cambridge and Duke of Sussex, and grandchildren Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, and baby Archie have been in his mind when he's campaigning for the environment.

On the subject of the UK's post-Brexit trade negotiations with the United States and the EU, Mr Mnuchin said: "What I saw coming out was that they wanted to accomplish both these deals in 2020".
