Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg accused world political and business leaders of being more concerned with their own image than taking aggressive action in the fight against climate change at a United Nations summit on Wednesday.
The movement officially began in August of 2018, after Thunberg spent three weeks sitting in front of the Swedish parliament demanding action on climate change during school days. "I am grateful for all she's done to raise awareness of the climate crisis and her willingness to tell hard, motivating truths", Clinton wrote.

Thunberg has Asperger's syndrome, which is a developmental disorder characterized by difficulties in social interaction and nonverbal communication.
Thunberg rose to global prominence a year ago by taking time off school to demonstrate outside Swedish parliament about the lack of action to combat climate change.
She was typically blunt in her assessment of politicians' efforts. "We should not look past it and ignore things", she said, addressing world leaders who did not attend the talks.
