Swedish Campaigner Thunberg Tells EU: 'Forget Brexit and Focus on Climate Change'

Climate activist Greta Thunberg addressed a packed European Parliament in Strasbourg on Tuesday, April 16, and urged leaders to forget Brexit and focus instead on pressing climate issues.

The Swedish teenager, who founded began the β€œschool strike” movement, shed tears during her speech as she urged EU leaders to face up to the realities of climate change.

β€œIf our house was falling apart,” she said, β€œyou wouldn’t hold three emergency Brexit summits and no emergency summit regarding the breakdown of the climate and the environment.” She received a standing ovation from the packed gallery.

Thunberg has previously addressed the UN Climate Change Summit in Poland and the World Economic Forum in Davos.
