The climate crisis is a central theme at World Economic Forum 2020

Activist Greta Thunberg is at the World Economic Forum in Davos. She said the climate crisis had changed not much.

"Pretty much nothing has been done since the global emissions of CO2 has not reduced." Thunberg also  said "that we start listening to the science and that we actually start treating this crisis as the crisis it is." She asked „immediately end all fossil fuel subsidies and immediately and completely divest from fossil fuels.” Thunberg acknowledged the attention but said that wasn't nearly enough. Speaking later , President Trump said: "Today I'm proud to declare the United States is in the midst of an economic boom, the likes of which the world has never seen before."
