In Interview with The Washington Post published Monday, Thunberg was asked if she was inspired by Biden or any world leaders fighting global warming and climate change.
Thunberg responded, “If you call Joe Biden a leader,””I mean, it’s strange that people think of Joe Biden as a leader for the climate when you see what his administration is doing.”
Thunberg, 18 years old, has been the face for the youth climate strike. It has become a global movement ever since Thunberg started protesting in Sweden back in 2018. Thunberg, 18, has repeatedly called on world leaders to do more in combating climate change. She believes her generation will be the most affected by global warming if they don’t.
Thunberg has spoken out against the actions of COP26, the conference on climate change that was held last month in Glasgow. The world’s leaders came up with a plan to reduce global carbon dioxide emissions. By 2030, 45 percentTo combat climate change, invest more money in developing countries.
Thunberg, however, criticized world leaders for not doing enough and called it a “PR Event.” Thunberg said to the Post that the conference doesn’t mean anything unless it leads to greater ambition and if they actually accomplish those ambitions.

“They have said themselves that this is an existential threat, and they’d better treat it accordingly, which they are not,” she added. “They are treating the climate crisis as a threat.” [if] it were a political topic among other topics.”

The president also presented a domestic agenda to combat climate change. The House passed the Build Back Better Act, which is a spending package of approximately $2 trillion. It contained measures that target climate change.

Manchin’s opposition meant that it would not pass in the 50-50 Senate. Democrats require every vote to pass the legislation.
Thunberg stated Monday that the U.S. is still not doing enough and promised that the country will expand its fossil fuel infrastructure by 2022.
“The U.S. is actually expanding its fossil fuel infrastructure. Why is the U.S. doing this? She stated. “It shouldn’t fall on teenagers and activists who just want to go school to raise awareness and inform the public that we are facing an emergency.”
Data from the U.S. Energy Information Administration showed that fossil fuel production will increase next year.
Thunberg said Monday that “numbers of people are already bearing brunt of climate crisis,” and added that it was important to put more pressure on world leaders for systemic changes to “prioritize crisis.”
Thunberg said now, “it’s all about the narrative.”
“It’s all about, what are we actually trying to solve?” She asked. “Is it this emergency, or is it this emergency?”
