Greta Thunberg calls out Mnuchin as he said ‘Teen should go to college before lecturing world leaders’

Climate activist Greta Thunberg has hit back at the US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin. He said in World Economic Forum that teen should study economics in college before lecturing world leaders.

Swedish teen replied to his criticism. She said: “It did not take a college degree ‘to realize carbon budget doesn’t add up.”

On Thursday Mr. Mnuchin said that Greta has no right to talk about the climate as she has no degree and she has not been in college yet. He said this at the press briefing in the world economic forum in the Swiss town of Davos.

He dismissed Greta’s suggestion that governments and companies need to cut back on their use of fossil fuels.

Greta tweeted: ” My gap year ends in August, but it doesn’t take a college degree in economics to realize that our remaining 1,5° carbon budget and ongoing fossil fuel subsidies and investments don’t add up.”

Mr. Mnuchin said: “Is she the chief economist? Who is she? I’m doubtful. After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us.”

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

Greta admits that young activists are being criticized all the time. We cannot care about those kinds of things,’ she said. She insisted that her priority was drawing attention and action to concerns about global warming.’ 

Greta is a role model for her supporters.
