Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg denounced the British Government as one of the biggest “climate villains” in the world, even though it produces only about one per cent of the world’s carbon dioxide emissions.

Greta Thunberg criticised world leaders at a Youth4Climate summit in Milan, saying their promises over the years to fight climate change had not gone anywhere near the steps that were needed.

The 18-year-old was speaking at the event, which will take place just weeks before the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26) next month.

Thunberg’s speech was a bleak warning to world leaders who will be meeting in Glasgow in November for the COP26 conference, the biggest gathering of world leaders dedicated to tackling climate change since the 2015 Paris accords.
