Time names climate activist Greta Thunberg its Person of the Year

"The real danger is when politicians and CEOs are making it look like real action is happening, when in fact nearly nothing is being done, apart from clever accounting and creative PR", the Swedish 16-year-old said Wednesday in a speech at the plenary of the ongoing United Nations climate talks in Madrid, or COP25.

Thunberg's stance on climate change has brought her into confrontation with some of the world's most powerful people.

The magazine interviewed Thunberg aboard the sailboat that took her from the United States to Europe after a hectic 11-week North American trip to several USA cities and Canada.

Earlier this day, Swedish teen eco-activist Greta Thunberg accused world politicians of doing "creative PR" instead of taking real steps toward fighting climate change.

Addressing the heads of delegations, activists and non-governmental organizations at the climate talks, Rockstrom said under the current scenario, the planet is heading to warming by 3-4 C in only 80 years.

Now, after having more information and more awareness of scientific studies, the activist spoke about a "sense of panic" when scientists say there are only eight years to intervene to avoid environmental disasters.

Following him, Thunberg cited the same reports, insisting that national pledges to reduce emissions weren't enough.

"This is not leading, this is misleading", she said, adding "every fraction of a degree matters".
