Greta Thunberg blasts politicians for 'ignoring' climate crisisThursday, April 22, 2021
WASHINGTON, United States (AFP) – Environmental campaigner Greta Thunberg assailed powerful politicians in biting remarks to a US congressional panel Thursday, accusing them of "ignoring" the climate crisis and demanding an end to fossil fuel subsidies.
