Greta Thunberg demands end to fossil fuel investments 'NOW'


Teenage activist Greta Thunberg is back with another round of telling adults what to do. This time she's at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and she's telling world leaders to stop investing in fossil fuels NOW! She even accused them of "fueling the flames" and causing climate change.

She yelled that planting tree isn't enough. She says everyone's making promises and not keeping them or delivering results. She wants this done now, she said.

In her remarks, she told the gathered business, political and NGO leaders that simply planting trees was "not enough," in what appeared to be a veiled swipe at President Donald Trump's announcement just a couple hours earlier that the U.S. was joining an international initiative to plant 1 trillion trees. Mr. Trump, in his opening address in Davos, also said it was time to reject the warnings of "prophets of doom and their predictions of the apocalypse."

Thunberg accused politicians of all stripes of making promises, but failing to deliver any results, and she demanded an immediate end to all investment in fossil fuels.

"We want this done now," she said. "It may seem that we are asking for lots, and you will of course say we are naive," but she said she and the children who support her around the world were actually seeking the "bare minimum" necessary to address what she calls the climate crisis facing the planet.

"Our house is still on fire. Your inaction is fueling the flames by the hour, and we are telling you to act as if you loved your children above all else," the young campaigner said.

Welp, that's enough out of her for now. Unless you want to watch the video in action.
