Mnuchin told Greta Thunberg she should study economics on Thursday (January 23), a quip that came two days after U.S. President Donald Trump and Thunberg sparred indirectly at the Davos summit.

Treasury Secretary Steve Munchin suggested that teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg should study economics before lecturing people on climate change. Who is she? I'm confused'.

Thunberg, for her part, trolled him right back by changing her Twitter bio to include his insults.

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. "Then after a short pause, he stated that it was" a joke".

The 50th edition of the annual Swiss Alpine Forum, ending with the threat of climate change - of which UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres warned that humanity could remain "doomed" - burst into the minds of the participants but doubted whether concrete action would be taken.

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

"I'm not going to criticize anyone who's bringing their energy and voice", she said. In the next few centuries and millennia, we'll see the planet around the sun. Of course these demands have been completely ignored.

"If we cared, we couldn't do what we do".

When asked if the comment had any effect on her, she matter-of-factly replied: "Of course, no effect". "We put ourselves in the spotlight".

'So either you tell us how to achieve this mitigation or you explain to future generations and those already affected by the climate emergency why we should abandon our climate commitments'.

"We have never sought discourse change", said Neubauer, who this month rejected the offer of a board seat at a subsidiary of the German industrial giant Siemens.
