Greta Thunberg is a 16-year-old Climate Change Activist who has participated in international discussions on Climate Change, where she called out leaders from the United Nations to act on Climate Change instead of just talking about action.
Now Greta is traveling across the Atlantic Ocean on a sailboat to attend more international talks in New York, then Chile. Many people are calling her a hero, while some right-winged media are calling her names I don't want to write down.
Find out why this bullying makes me angry and how Greta responded to the attacks by listening to this episode.

Greta started protesting against climate change after she saw inaction from politicians, engineers, professionals, and even her own parents in August 2018. She missed school for 3 weeks to protest in front of the Swedish Parliament, where she started to inspired students and adults alike. Her protests caught the attention of major news agencies in Sweden, which led to her protests having a bigger reach.
Earlier this year, Greta spoke to a panel of international leaders at COP18 telling them that they need to take more action on Climate Change.
Her leadership has inspired her generation on a global scale.
I discuss the impact she will have on her generation and try to squash criticisms of her and other youth action takers by people who are always coming up with excuses.
