A 'trillion trees' are not enough: Thunberg vs Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump used his part of his Davos speech to rail against climate activists while pledging to join a multinational tree-planting initiative.

In an apparent rebuttal, Greta Thunberg told world leaders that the project ignored the catastrophic realities of environmental damage.

A 'trillion trees' are not enough: Thunberg vs Trump

Trump and Thunberg have taken the center stage at this year's World Economic Forum, said to be the most environmentally-focused yet for the annual gathering of the global elite.

But at a conference where environmental issues are in the spotlight, Trump shied away from the topic almost entirely.

In his brief remarks on the topic he told his audience to avoid the "pessimism" of activists predicting the "apocalypse." Thunberg said efforts to tamper down pessimism were often paired with "empty words and promises."
