Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “‘There is no planet B’: Greta Thunberg questions climate change talks” – below is their description.

Greta Thunberg mocked world leaders including Boris Johnson as she accused them of making ’empty promises’ on climate change as she opened a youth summit in Milan today. The 18-year-old Swedish activist, who became famous through her ‘school strike for climate protests’, quoted a speech that Mr Johnson gave to world leaders on the climate earlier this year – sarcastically adding ‘build back better, blah blah blah. Green economy, blah blah blah, net zero by 2050, blah blah blah.’ She was speaking at the Youth4Climate event, a three-day summit where young delegates from around the world will develop climate policies before presenting them to ministers attending the Pre-COP conference, which is also taking place in Milan this week. The best will then be taken to the COP26 summit which will be hosted in the UK later this year, to be discussed by world leaders.
