Sixteen-year-old Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, who’s led an international campaign of weekly school strikes for the climate, spoke about the protests from Strasbourg, France, as she prepared to appear at the EU Parliament. She’s due to meet Pope Francis on Wednesday.
Greta Thunberg: “I feel like the debate is shifting. More people are talking about this more and are taking this more seriously and are becoming more aware. But, of course, the only thing we need to look at is the emission curb, if the emissions are actually increasing or if they’re reducing. And right now they’re increasing, so that is the only thing we should look at.”
