Thunberg, a 16-year-old from Sweden, spoke to world leaders at the 2019 U.N. climate action summit in New York. The teen received harsh criticism from the right, including President Trump.

In a tweet, Thunberg said she didn’t “understand why adults would choose to spend their time mocking and threatening teenagers and children for promoting science, when they could do something good instead.”
