image for Jeremy Clarkson says teen climate activist Greta Thunberg a 'spoilt brat' who makes him 'sick'

Former Top Gear presenter Jeremy Clarkson says teen climate activist Greta Thunberg is a "spoilt brat" whose "meltdown" at the UN made him sick.

In the video above: Prince Harry asks how anyone could deny climate change.

But instead, he writes, when the 16-year-old Swedish campaigner "had a full-on adolescent meltdown" while addressing the United Nations on September 23, "she was deafened by the applause".

But Clarkson's 25-year-old daughter Em Clarkson responded to her dad's column with a tweet praising a middle-aged British comedian John Bishop for calling Thunberg "inspirational".

"Wouldn’t it be nice if all middle-aged blokes could talk to and about Greta ... like this," she tweeted.

Greta Thunberg delivers a speech to the UN climate conference.

Meanwhile in Australia, Prime Minister Scott Morrison did not criticise Thunberg personally but said he did not want the climate debate to produce "needless anxiety" in children. »
