Climate alarmist Greta Thunberg described it as "strange" that individuals view U.S. President Joe Biden as a leader when it comes to the climate.
The activist, who is Swedish, made the comment in response to a question about whether President Biden or any world leaders inspire her.
Here's more from the interview, published by the Washington Post magazine:
Are you inspired by any of the world leaders, by President Biden?
If you call him a leader — I mean, it’s strange that people think of Joe Biden as a leader for the climate when you see what his administration is doing. The U.S. is actually expanding fossil fuel infrastructure. Why is the U.S. doing that? It should not fall on us activists and teenagers who just want to go to school to raise this awareness and to inform people that we are actually facing an emergency.
People ask us, “What do you want?” “What do you want politicians to do?” And we say, first of all, we have to actually understand what is the emergency. We are trying to find a solution of a crisis that we don’t understand. For example, in Sweden, we ignore — we don’t even count or include more than two-thirds of our actual emissions. How can we solve a crisis if we ignore more than two-thirds of it? So it’s all about the narrative. It’s all about, what are we actually trying to solve? Is it this emergency, or is it this emergency?
The Biden administration has been a vocal proponent of climate alarmism.
Earlier this year while speaking at the COP26 climate summit in Scotland, Biden referred to "the existential ... threat to human existence as we know it."
"The Keystone XL pipeline disserves the U.S. national interest," Biden's executive order declared. "The United States and the world face a climate crisis. That crisis must be met with action on a scale and at a speed commensurate with the need to avoid setting the world on a dangerous, potentially catastrophic, climate trajectory."
