Greta Thunberg Tells Trevor Noah What She Thinks of the U.S.'s Attitude on Climate Change: "Where I Come From, It's a Fact"

By

Greta Thunberg is in New York City to speak at the U.N. later this month — and she got some great practice in front of a New York crowd when she appeared on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Wednesday. The teenage climate activist went on the talk show to promote the Global Climate Strike on Friday, Sept. 20, and she also opened up to the host about the 15-day boat ride she took across the Atlantic ocean to get to New York, her perception of Americans so far, and more.

Greta grew up in Sweden, and that’s where she began the Fridays for Future movement last August, inspiring millions of students all over the world to strike from school every Friday. But now, the 16-year-old is in the Americas for at least the next nine months. That’s quite the culture shock. So, host Trevor Noah asked Greta about the difference between Sweden and the U.S. in terms of treatment of the climate crisis  — and Greta’s answer says it all.
