Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg accused political and business leaders of polishing their images with “clever accounting and creative PR” rather than taking concrete action in the fight against climate change at the United Nations Climate Change Conference COP25 summit on Wednesday in Madrid.

She ended off her speech with a message: “This is what I want you to focus on. So, please tell me how do you react to these numbers without feeling at least some level of panic? How do you respond to the fact that basically nothing is being done about this without feeling the slightest bit of anger? And how do you communicate this without sounding alarmist? I would really like to know.”

Thunberg has become a symbol of youth anger against older generations and the political classes for foot-dragging over the environmental crisis.
