Democrat presidential candidates on Monday lauded Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg’s scathing speech targeting world leaders for what she described as their inaction against ecological self-extermination.
In a tweet, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) wrote it was a “disgrace” that a teenager had to speak out against purported global warming.
“What a disgrace that it takes a 16-year-old to tell world leaders what they won’t acknowledge: We cannot continue with this type of ruthless capitalism that is destroying our planet. This is why we need young people leading our climate justice movement,” he said, sharing a video snippet of the 16-year-old’s remarks.
