Trump’s tree-planting pledge is not enough, Thunberg warns 


In an apparent rebuke to a pledge Trump made earlier today in Davos, Greta Thunberg warned that planting trees was not enough to tackle the climate emergency. 


Trump announced the US would join an existing initiative to plant one trillion trees, but also spoke at length about the economic importance of oil and gas. However, Thunberg is calling for an immediate end to fossil fuel investments.  


“Planting trees is good of course but it’s nowhere near enough,” Thunberg said. “It cannot replace mitigation,” she added, referring to efforts to cut emissions.
