“I honestly don’t understand why adults would choose to spend their time mocking and threatening teenagers and children for promoting science, when they could do something good instead.
Ms Thunberg rose to prominence after her solitary protests outside the Swedish parliament grew into a global movement of school strikes.
Ms Thunberg has also been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize, the winner of which will be announced in the first week of October.
She is expected to spend the next nine months in the Americas, and so far has plans to visit Canada, Mexico and Chile. »
