'What the president objects to is the Paris agreement, because he thought it was an unfair agreement for the United States, ' he said.

After the press conference, the activists were set to join the Friday for Future protest in Davos. "Who is she? I'm confused", Mnuchin said, emphasising after a pause that this was a joke.

White said corporations would have to tell staff, "You don't have to come into work this week, we're all planting trees", and governments will have to deposit trees in all the schools, to actually carry out the plan. "You have another continent where the fumes are rising at levels that you can't believe-I mean, I think Greta ought to focus on those places". "We put ourselves in the spotlight".

"At present, there's an insane center on climate activists, on individuals". He criticized Thunberg's demand for a halt to investment in fossil fuels. They have also called for ending subsidies and completely divesting from fossil fuels. Thunberg warned earlier this week that planting trees was not enough to tackle the climate crisis. "We hadn't expected anything less", Thunberg told reporters in the ski resort on the last day of the conference.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg complained that campaigners' demands had been "completely ignored" at the World Economic Forum in Davos this week and called her treatment by US President Donald Trump "horrible".

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

In a heated exchange with European Central Bank chief Christine Lagarde, Mnuchin said experts are overestimating the financial impact of climate change.
