Davos 2023: Greta Thunberg says energy industry throwing people 'under the bus'

By Maha El Dahan

DAVOS, Switzerland, Jan 19 (Reuters) - Climate activist Greta Thunberg said on Thursday that the global energy industry would go as far as it could without public pressure, adding that the sector would continue to invest in fossil fuels and "throw people under the bus for their gain".

During a round-table discussion between climate campaigners and International Energy Agency (IEA) head Fatih Birol in Davos, Thunberg and other activists said they had presented a "cease and desist" letter to chief executives calling on them to stop opening new oil, gas and coal extraction sites.
