Greta Thunberg criticises politicians at Davos

Swedish climate campaigner Greta Thunberg on Thursday criticised corporate bigwigs meeting in Davos, Switzerland, for “fuelling the destruction of the planet” by investing in fossil fuels and prioritising short-term profits over people affected by the climate crisis. It comes after Ms Thunberg was detained by police in western Germany along with others… as they protested against the ongoing destruction of a village to make way for a coal mine expansion. The activist was joined by prominent campaigners Vanessa Nakate, Helena Gualinga and Luisa Neubauer in a session at the World Economic Forum with the International Energy Agency’s executive director Fatih Birol.
