Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg said on Friday that U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin’s comments had “no effect” on her during a news conference with other young climate activists in Davos. Mnuchin told Greta Thunberg she should study economics on Thursday, a quip that came two days after U.S. President Donald Trump and Thunberg sparred indirectly at the Davos summit. After Trump said the U.S. had committed to joining the one trillion tree initiative, Thunberg retorted that fixing the climate crisis was not only about trees. Thunberg later joined climate strikers in Davos on the last day of the World Economic Forum (WEF).
