Thunberg likewise talked about how no world chiefs were doing what’s necessary yet to spare our planet. “No political philosophy or monetary structure has figured out how to handle the atmosphere and natural crisis and make a durable and practical world,” she said. “Since that world, on the off chance that you hadn’t saw, is presently ablaze.”
