She’s back!

This afternoon.

Berlin, Germany.

Thunberg, who along with other activists delivered Merkel a letter with 125,000 signatures calling on leaders to do more to cut emissions, said people should “step put of their comfort zones” and be brave enough to tackle the problem.

“We told her we face a climate emergency,” Thunberg said of the meeting with Merkel. “We want leaders to step up and treat this as an emergency,” she said at a press conference.

This morning.

Prince Harry’s candid views came during two revealing conversations with hoaxers posing as Swedish climate activist Greta and her father Svante in calls on New Year’s Eve and January 22…..

…even when the chats became bizarre, including when fake ‘Greta’ talks about an arranged marriage to six-year-old Prince George and the need to move penguins to the North Pole, Harry doesn’t appear concerned and keeps chatting.

The prince also claimed Mr Trump had ‘blood on his hands’ over his climate credentials and labelled the British political system ‘broken’. He said the world was being run by ‘some very sick people’

“It feels like the climate and environment is a hot topic now. But from another perspective virtually nothing has been done. Without treating this as a real crisis we cannot solve it.”

“We must reject the perennial prophets of doom.This is not a time for pessimism. This is a time for optimism.”

School children across Ireland, and the world, are going on ‘strike’ to demonstrate about climate change.

It follows Swedish student Greta Thunberg, 16, who started hosting Friday protests outside the Swedish parliament eight months ago.
