Speaking at a rally of climate change activists near the site of the COP26 summit in Glasgow, Thunberg said: “Inside COP there are just politicians and people in power pretending to take our futures seriously…. Change is not going to come from inside there. That is not leadership, this is leadership.”
Thunberg has recently berated politicians for 30 years of “blah, blah, blah” rather than acting to curb global warming.
Delayed by a year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, COP26 aims to keep alive a target of capping global warming at 1.5 degrees Celsius above pre-industrial levels – the limit scientists say would avoid its most destructive consequences.
