‘Don’t need degree to know about climate targets’: Greta to US Treasury chief

US Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told Greta Thunberg on Thursday she should study economics, a jibe which prompted the climate activist to say she did not need a degree to know the world was not meeting its climate targets.

Asked about Thunberg’s previous calls to divest from fossil fuels, Mnuchin told a news briefing in Davos: “Is she the chief economist? I’m confused … After she goes and studies economics in college, she can come back and explain that to us.”

Mnuchin lists a bachelor’s degree in economics from Yale University on his LinkedIn social network profile.
