Greta Thunberg: Teen activist says UK is 'irresponsible' on climate [View all]

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-48017083

Teenage activist Greta Thunberg has described the UK's response to climate change as "beyond absurd".

In a speech to MPs, the Swedish 16-year-old criticised the UK for supporting new exploitation of fossil fuels and exaggerating cuts to carbon emissions.

She was invited to Westminster after inspiring the school climate strikes movement.

In her speech in Parliament on Tuesday, Miss Thunberg said the UK was supporting shale gas fracking, greater exploitation of North Sea oil and gas fields and expanding airports.
