Who Is Greta Thunberg? The Swedish Schoolgirl Turned Climate Activist

Take your time Duchess

Schoolgirl climate activist Greta Thunberg has told MPs her future has been "stolen".

"Greta's efforts in encouraging more action on climate change across the globe have been exemplary, dignified and effective".

Extinction Rebellion says it will end its remaining blockades at Marble Arch and Parliament Square on Thursday.

Police have said they have a "robust" plan in place ahead of a proposed climate change protest in Parliament Square.

Scores of eco-protesters were massed outside Parliament as Environment Secretary Michael Gove admitted "we have not done almost enough" on man-made climate change.

"When I listened to you, I felt great admiration, but also responsibility and guilt".

"I support Extinction Rebellion".

"Scotland has always been a leader in the fight against climate change".

"A climate change movement that looks like Hackney, looks like inner city Manchester, looks like inner-city Birmingham, will be a climate change movement that is impossible to resist".

He wrote: "It was a pleasure welcoming United Kingdom youth climate strikers and @GretaThunberg to parliament".

As part of the aforementioned cross-party coalition, Lucas met with Thunberg and encouraged all areas of government to join the cause through an "open invitation".

More than 1,000 people have been arrested during XR protests which started on April 15, while more than 10,000 police officers have been deployed.

Her story travelled around the globe, and soon school children in 123 countries were joining Greta, now 16, in her school strike every Friday around the world. "Will the Minister's Government sign up to those practical proposals?"

Climate campaigner Greta Thunberg was praised as "exemplary and dignified" by Argyll and Bute's MP after a special parliamentary reception today. For too long-this covers both parties-people have been shut out of the climate debate and made to feel powerless. "And I see myself in the long line of awesome, wonderful people who have gone before us, from the suffragettes to Gandhi to the civil rights movement, and many, many, many other people around the world who are putting their bodies and their minds and their hearts on the line". You can read the entire meeting minutes here. May's official spokesman said he was "not aware" of the request.

Lowering emissions is not enough - they need to be stopped altogether. The task ahead of us is to put into action real changes that will ensure young people are guaranteed a secure, safe and prosperous future. "Civil disobedience is important to show this is an emergency", she said at Monday's event. Those are skills that you will learn best by engaging in education.
