Backatcha: Thunberg returns Trump’s climate jibe

DAVOS, Switzerland (AP) — Greta Thunberg is not easily intimidated. The 17-year-old Swedish activist wasted little time to push back against United States (US) President Donald Trump’s description of climate campaigners as “the perennial prophets of doom” who predict the “apocalypse”. Though Trump did not mention her directly in his speech at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in the Swiss Alpine resort of Davos, it was clear he had his sights on Thunberg, who shot to fame a year ago by staging a regular strike at her school and sparked a global environmental movement. She then beat the US President to receive Time Magazine’s award as the 2019 Person of the Year. More details in Thursday’s Borneo Bulletin
