Teenage activist Greta Thunberg takes climate protest to Trump

Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg , who has shot to global fame for inspiring worldwide student strikes to promote action against climate change, ...

Hundreds of mostly young people gathered across the street from the White House to meet her carrying signs reading"People or Profit?" and"Warming!", chanting"This is a crisis, act like it!" and"Business as usual is not enough."

Jennifer Morash, a doctoral candidate in plant science, brought her daughter Adeline, 9, to the rally after getting permission from her school in Maryland."I just want to make sure we all have a happy future and for people to take climate change seriously," Adeline said."

Trump is among a small minority of global leaders who has openly questioned the science of climate change. He has announced his intention to withdraw the United States from the Paris Climate Agreement – a global pact to stem the rise in global temperatures - and has a policy of maximizing American production of fossil fuels.

Thunberg has said she does not believe she can convince Trump or other climate change doubters that global warming is real, but hopes they will take briefings from “actual scientists and experts in this area.”

Thunberg was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize earlier this year after the number of students taking part in the “Fridays for Future” school strikes broke 2 million across 135 countries. She was named one of the world’s most influential people by Time magazine in May.
