Greta Thunberg ridiculed President Joe Biden and other global leaders for their lack of dedication to her political cause during a youth conference on global warming.

The climate-warming activist made the comments during her speech at the Youth4Climate forum Tuesday in Milan, Italy. Thunberg, 18, repeated phrases used by global leaders in a mocking fashion.

"When I say climate change, what do you think of? I think jobs. Green jobs. Green jobs," she said, mocking Biden's global warming plan. "Build Back Better, blah, blah, blah!

"We must find a smooth transition towards a low carbon economy. There is no Planet B. There is no Planet Blah. Blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah," she continued, repeating phrases from a speech by French President Emmanuel Macron.

"This is not about some expensive, politically correct dream at the bunny hugging or blah, blah, blah. Build back better, blah, blah, blah. Green economy, blah, blah, blah," Thunberg added, deriding UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

"Net zero, blah, blah, blah!" she said. "Climate neutral, blah, blah, blah. This is all we hear from our so-called leaders — words, words that sound great but so far, has led to no action or hopes and dreams. Empty words and promises!"

Thunberg previously mocked John Kerry, Biden's U.S. special climate envoy, over a suggestion that technological advances could help fight global warming while preserving the high standard of living in Western countries. She fired off a dismissive tweet with a link to his comments.

"Great news! I spoke to Harry Potter and he said he will team up with Gandalf, Sherlock Holmes & The Avengers and get started right away!" she mocked.

Thunberg has also complained that Chinese state-owned media was "fat-shaming" her in a critique from June.

"Although she claims to be vegetarian, judging from the results of her growth, her carbon emissions are actually not low," wrote writer Tang Ge.
