Teenage Activist Speaks the Dire Truth. Are You Listening?

This Swedish teenager just wrecked U.N. climate negotiators. 

Fifteen-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg addressed the U.N. plenary last night in Katowice, Poland, condemning global inaction in the face of catastrophic climate change.

“You say you love your children above all else, and yet you’re stealing their future in front of their very eyes,” the towheaded, pigtailed activist said to the assembled dignitaries. Then, Thunberg addressed world leaders directly, telling them she didn’t come to the conference to beg. “You have ignored us in the past, and you will ignore us again.”

“The suffering of the many pays for the luxury of the few”

Warning: You may cry listening to this brilliant and magical girl.
