Environment activist Greta Thunberg made a fiery appearance at the United Nations Climate Summit on Monday where she broke down in tears while furiously scolding international delegates. ‘I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,’ the 16-year-old Swedish activist thundered in her speech at the Climate Action Summit 2019 in New York. Thunberg was seen at the UN headquarters Monday morning with an enraged expression on her face as US President Donald Trump upstaged her entrance by walking in behind her flanked by news reporters. The UN summit convened to have nations make plans to confront global warming and rising fossil fuel emissions.

“stolen my dreams and my childhood”?
I don’t understand that. Other than it makes a nice headline.
Hard to imaging that this “sixteen year old” hasn’t had “adult” coaching?
