Greta Thunberg's Speech to the United Nations

 Richard Flanagan in The Guardian:
 Greta Thunberg's speech to the UN drew "the battle lines between those of us who want action on climate change and those, like Trump, who only mock it ... (Her)  address to the UN’s Climate Action Summit on Monday may well prove to be the climate change movement’s Gettysburg Address. Like Abraham Lincoln’s revered speech, which ran to 273 words, Thunberg’s was also very short, only 495 words long."

And here is what she said. Skip the ads and listen to the video.
