On Tuesday, as President Trump arrived in Davos, Thunberg gave a speech stressing the urgency of taking action to combat climate change. "Obviously, those demands have been completely ignored".

"The problem isn't being treated as the crisis it's", Thunberg added.

Inquired about Thunberg's call to divest from nonrenewable fuel sources, Mnuchin notified a news rundown: "Is she the chief financial expert?"

Turning more serious, Mnuchin added, "After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us".

"Well she's remarkable. She represents one of the main reasons why I've been trying to make all this effort all these years", he said. "If we were careful we could not do what we do".

USA finance leader Steve Mnuchin disregarded the Swede's call for governments and organizations to cut back on fossil fuel usage. Who is she? I'm confused'.

Teenage activist Greta Thunberg on Friday, January 24, said activists' call to the corporate and political elite in Davos to seriously combat climate change was "completely ignored" but promised not to be subjected to personal criticism from the Trump. administration. "We put ourselves in the spotlight".

On Wednesday, Ms Thunberg hit back after Mr Trump described climate campaigners as "the perennial prophets of doom" who predict the "apocalypse". We are constantly criticized in this way. "I don't know how they evaluate what we say, hopefully they listen, but generally I do think they dismiss us because of our age".

The heir to the British throne, who's well-known for his environmental campaigning, was pictured meeting and shaking hands with the 17-year-old Swedish environmental activist following his address.

"From the first day we aimed for effective climate action". "[.] The media really need to actually start speaking about what is needed to be done, not only sensational headlines", said Axelsson.
