Steven Mnuchin Tells Greta Thunberg to ‘Study Economics’ Before Advising on ‘Complicated’ Issues by SIMON KENT for Breitbart
GNN Note – WOW! And this on top of another prominent voice explains they don’t see Greta in Beijing and Delhi spreading her message! The climate hoax is, thank goodness, falling apart. This scam, to remake the economy is finally being exposed, even at the highest levels.
U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin took time Thursday to advise Swedish climate worrier Greta Thunberg to attend college and study economics before telling others how to manage the planet’s resources.
The topic came up in Davos at the World Economic Forum (WEF) when Mnuchin was approached for comment about the 17-year-old’s warning that the world’s largest economy needed to completely and immediately divest from fossil fuels, AFP reports.
“Does Greta Thunberg’s call for an end to fossil fuel investment threaten U.S. economic growth?” a member of the press asked.
“Is she the chief economist or who is she? I’m confused,” Mnuchin said, before adding this was clearly “a joke. That was funny.”
“After she goes and studies economics in college she can come back and explain that to us,” was Mnuchin’s succinct summation as he elaborated further.
Mnuchin then developed his argument by saying there are no easy choices when it comes to the environment.
He told reporters:
When I was allowed to drive I had a Tesla. I drove in California. I liked it.
But nobody focuses on how that electricity is made, and what happens to the storage and the environmental issues on all these batteries.
The environmental issues are clearly complicated.
Mnuchin also pointed out America is taking a lead — but through its companies.
If you look at the U.S. from a leadership standpoint – driven by private industry not governent control, we’ve been a leader.
He said people who call for fossil fuel divestment (such as Thunberg this week) do not realise there are significant economic issues, and potential job losses, in simplistic across-the-board solutions.
