Climate activist Greta Thunberg to world leaders: How dare you?

Climate activist Greta Thunberg spoke heartily at the United Nations Climate Action Summit on Monday where she fiercely denounced world leaders for severely neglecting to address climate change. The 16-year-old has come to be one of the preeminent voices for a generation defying the tragic consequences of climate change

“I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” the 16-year-old activist tearfully told world leaders in the audience.

She promptly accused them of being solely concerned about the “money” and “fairy tales of eternal economic growth”.

“You are failing us. But young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are upon you. And if you choose to fail us, I say, we will never forgive you. We will not let you get away with this. Right here, right now, is where we draw the line. The world is waking up, and change is coming whether you like it or not,” she added.
