16 year old Greta Thunberg addressed the Climate Action Summit in the United Nations General Assembly this week. Miss Thunberg has spent recent months in an accelerating bid to cast attention on global warming and its effects on the rising generation, and took an emotional appeal at the conference, stating ‘’we are in the beginning of a mass extinction and yet all you can talk about is money.
