A massive and immediate reduction in Carbon dioxide emissions is required to retain a fighting chance of keeping global temperatures from rising a potentially catastrophic 1.5 degrees Celsius, she said.

"Your inaction is fuelling the flames".

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg was blunt when she addressed a crowd of the world's most powerful and wealthiest people at Davos today, reports CNBC.

Thunberg called on all nations of the world to immediately stop all fossil fuel search and extraction, end fossil fuel subsidies, and divest from fossil fuels. I know you don't want to talk about this.

Venezuela's opposition leader Juan Guaido - who declared himself acting president previous year - will be attending the forum in defiance of a travel ban imposed by the regime of President Nicolas Maduro.

Francis issued written greetings to remind delegates of the "moral obligation" to place "the human person, rather than the mere pursuit of power or profit, at the very center of public policy". Following in Thunberg's footsteps, other young activists are also taking part this year, including South African climate activist Ayakha Melithafa, Irish teen scientist Fionn Ferreira.

They also include South African climate activist Ayakha Melithafa, 17, and Canadian Autum Peltier, who has been advocating for water conservation since she was 8. I don't want you to be hopeful.

President Trump was speaking hours before his impeachment trial gets underway in the US Senate.

'This is just the very beginning, ' she said, adding that everyone needs to listen more to the science regarding climate change and the heating of the planet.

"America's thriving, America's flourishing, and yes, America is winning again like never before", Trump said.

U.S. President Donald Trump is selling the United States to the global business community.

"To every business looking for a place to succeed.there is no better place than the USA", he added.

He told a packed auditorium that trade deals struck this month with China and Mexico represented a model and took his biggest swipe yet at the Federal Reserve, whose policies he says are holding back the US economy.

Mr Trump also took his biggest swipe yet at the Federal Reserve, whose policies he believes are holding back the U.S. economy.

The IMF said the more upbeat forcast is largely due to Trump and China easing their trade war, and the stimulus from 49 central banks, including the Federal Reserve, that have lowered interest rates.
