The speech of Greta Thunberg, a teenager at the United Nations Summit on climate change has gone viral on the internet.
Thunberg shamed the 60 [odd] year old world leaders by repeatedly questioning their inaction on climate change — “How Dare You?”
In her speech she accused the UN leaders of having stolen her dreams and childhood with their empty promises. Thunberg said: “We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and yet all you can talk about is money. You are failing us.”

Apart from her viral speech, the 16-year-old climate activist was captured giving US President Donald Trump an icy cold glare and this too has gone viral on social media, just after her speech at the United Nations Summit on climate change.
In the video, Greta can be seen waiting patiently in the lobby at the United Nations; her face reflect curiosity as she waits to see who’s arriving. Her expressions change to that of anger and frustration on seeing Donald Trump.
We are all Greta Thunberg.

Meanwhile, Trump appears to have taken a swipe at teenage activist. Trump tweeted, “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!”
Here are a few posts celebrating the teen:

Martin Luther King said “I have a dream”, Kennedy said “Ich bin ein Berliner”, Reagan said “Tear down that wall”, Obama said “Yes, we can”. @GretaThunberg said “How dare you?”. This is history! #howdareyou

Thank you @gretathunberg for giving us the much needed punch in the face, for bringing your generation together and showing us that we need to know better, do more to save what is most critical. At the end of the day, we only have this one planet. #HowDareYou https://t.co/IiQ5NUavpD

I have no words….
Just after the speech, I cried.
Because that's what I think, that's what I feel, that's what every child who has understood the urgency feels.
fear, anger and helplessness.
That's all we feel.#HowDareYou?

This is devastatingly powerful. @GretaThunberg gave a brutally honest assessment of where the world is at, the failure of leadership, and why it is not fair to leave saving the planet to our children and grandchildren. #howdareyou https://t.co/Kx73xl2n0U

Wow. This speech from Greta Thunberg:
"People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you.” https://t.co/6QjYTgyUhQ
