These new revelations have angered climate change activists all over the globe, especially as the prince himself was calling for a "Green Tax" to be introduced.

Mnuchin stated the 17- year-old, that advised globe leaders to unload from the nonrenewable fuel source sector at the World Economic Forum recently, ought to obtain a business economics level if she wishes to be taken seriously.

"Either you tell us how to achieve this mitigation or explain to future generations and those already affected by the climate emergency why we should abandon our climate commitments", Thunberg added. "But we need to think about the long-term impact on the global currency", he said. "Our emissions have to stop".

Thunberg has also been the target of President Donald Trump, who made fun of the teen activist on Twitter.

"I'm not going to criticize anyone who's bringing their energy and voice. And I think from a USA standpoint we are prepared to dedicate a lot of resources".

Earlier this week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Mnuchin took a shot at Thunberg's activism in comments to press.

When asked how that would affect the U.S. economic model, Mnuchin said of Thunberg: 'Is she the chief economist? "Who is she? I'm confused", he said. He paused before adding that his comments were "a joke".

But either by accident or design, there was no meeting between Trump and Thunberg at the forum.

In a speech on Tuesday, Trump castigated the "prophets of doom" and those that predicted a climate "apocalypse", while Thunberg sat in the audience. In the next few centuries and millennia, we'll see the planet around the sun. "Of course, if we could care about that then we wouldn't be able to do what we do". From a sustainability perspective, the right, the left as well as the center have all failed.
