Trump rejects environmental ‘prophets of doom’

Davos (Switzerland) (AFP) – US President Donald Trump on Tuesday lashed out at the “perennial prophets of doom” who warn that the world is in the throes of a major environmental crisis, as he addressed an audience in Davos including Swedish teenage campaigner Greta Thunberg.

“We must reject the perennial prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse,” said Trump, hours after Thunberg told the World Economic Forum that governments had done “basically nothing” to reverse climate change.
