The Swedish teenager is in the US to speak at the UN climate summit on 23 September
After taking a solar-powered boat from England to New York City to attend the United Nations Climate Action Summit, Thunberg sat down with The Washington Post to discuss her role in the fight for preventing climate change.

The spontaneous act elicited a smile from Thunberg. Thunberg was attending an event on Capitol Hill and had opted not to speak at the event, choosing instead to listen as other teens spoke about their own environmental concerns. Thunberg attended a Senate climate crisis task force on Tuesday, and told lawmakers: ‘Don’t invite us here to just tell us how inspiring we are without actually doing anything about it because it doesn’t lead to anything.’
