On MSNBC’s The Mehdi Hasan Show Sunday, almost three years to the day after she first skipped school to protest outside the Swedish parliament, youth climate activist Greta Thunberg gave her latest assessment of how President Biden and his administration are tackling climate change.
She went viral on Hasan’s show back in March after accusing Biden of treating the climate crisis like just another political topic, instead of treating it like an actual crisis. So Hasan asked if her stance has changed over the past five months, especially given the new bipartisan infrastructure bill which contains some pointed measures to help tackle climate change.
“Unfortunately, no. My view has not changed,” Thunberg said. “This has just confirmed this administration is not ready to act as seriously as we need, unfortunately. But that was what I expected.”
