[Ed. – How dare them.]
An exasperated Greta Thunberg has scolded “presidents, prime ministers, kings and princesses” she claims only want to burnish their image by being photographed in her presence.
As part of a new series about her campaigning made for Swedish radio during the coronavirus lockdown, Thunberg revealed the German chancellor, Angela Merkel, had waited to have a “selfie” with the teenager at a U.N. climate gathering in New York.
It was in the U.N. she delivered her “how dare you” speech. “You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words”, she told the gathered world leaders.
On the radio program, the Guardian reports the teenage climate worrier was critical of the way high-ranking figures had behaved afterwards. She said:
Presidents, prime ministers, kings and princesses came and wanted to talk to me.
