Teenage climate activistGreta Thunberg slammed President Joe Biden’s handling of the climate crisis on Sunday, saying he hasn’t done “nearly enough.”.
On The Mehdi Hasan Show on MSNBC, she was asked how she’d grade the new US president’s efforts on climate change so far.
“And then you can clearly see that, no, it’s not nearly enough in line with the science.”.
Since taking office, President Biden has rejoined the Paris Agreement on climate change, appointed John Kerry as a special climate change envoy, and undone many of former president Trump’s rollbacks of environmental policies.
They are just treating the climate crisis as [if] it were a political topic among other topics.”.
Ms Thunberg, 18, has been a climate activist since 2018, when she began skipping school to protest outside the Swedish parliament against what she saw as inaction on climate change.
Hundreds of thousands of students around the world soon joined her movement , alternately called “School Strike for Climate” or “Fridays for Future.”. »
