And Still Gets Praised!

Attacking the responsible authorities, Greta said, "My message is that we'll be watching you. I shouldn't be here. I should have been back at school, on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you?" Over the past two years, Greta has become quite popular for her efforts in addressing climate change. She had started by handing out leaflets outside the Swedish Parliament. Her efforts prompted children around the world her age to conduct protests demanding a better future.
