Greta scolds world leaders, again
A year after she asked the world leaders to wake up to the dangers of climate change, Greta Thunberg told them that they were not doing enough for the nature.
The Swedish activist was at the World Economic Forum to talk about climate change. She said the increase in global temperature could not be kept below 1.5C if the world continued to use up its limited carbon budget at its current rate.
The teen activist said awareness of the climate crisis had shot up but in other respects, not much has changed.
Asked what she wanted to see in the future, Thunberg said “that we start listening to the science and that we actually start treating this crisis as the crisis it is.”
Since appearing on the sidelines of last year’s Davos meeting, Thunberg’s profile has taken off and she was named Time’s “Person of the Year.”
