‘Is the microphone really on?’: watch Greta Thunberg address UK MPs

School Strike climate activist Greta Thunberg visited the UK this week. What she said to parliament is unmissable.

We have been public about our support for the School Strikes and are inspired by the teenage activist who inspired them, Greta Thunberg.

Despite — or perhaps because of — her young age she is a very powerful public speaker. When we handed over our Twitter account to UK strikers we published her speech to the UN’s COP24. Her words and delivery this week to UK MPs are all the more cutting in that they address our own country’s failings.

WWF captured the speech in full, so rather than try to summarise, we recommend you watch from beginning to end:

We must start today. We have no more excuses.
