Environment activist Greta Thunberg furiously choked on tears while speaking at the United Nations Climate Summit on Monday, where she thundered against leaders for stealing her generation’s future.  

‘I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us for hope. How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,’ the 16-year-old Swedish activist reprimanded at the Climate Action Summit 2019 on Monday in New York.

The UN summit sought to get nations to address and make plans to confront the rising number of global heat-trapping emissions across the globe. Such emissions have been on the rise due to energy demands and reliance on fossil fuels.

‘And if you choose to fail us, I say, we will never forgive you,’ she added on the brink of tears.
