Greta Thunberg testifies to Congress over climate crisis – watch live

Teen activist Greta Thunberg delivered a talking-to to members of Congress Tuesday during a meeting of the Senate Climate Change Task Force after politicians praised her and other youth activists for their efforts and asked their advice on how to fight climate change.


"Don't invite us here to tell us how inspiring we are without doing anything about it," Thunberg told the assembled senators. "We don't want to be invited to these kinds of meetings because, honestly, they don't lead to anything...I know you are trying but just not hard enough. Sorry."

Thunberg also visited with President Barack Obama this week, and a video released by the Obama Foundation shows the two fist-bumping.
