Thunberg Issues Warning to World Leaders and Those in Power, Vows You have not seen anything yet


Greta Thunberg told world leaders on Friday
“I would like to say that you have not seen anything yet. You have not seen the last of us, we can assure
you that” as she marched with hundreds of people in the western Swiss city of Laussane
ahead of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, next week. The 17-year-old Swedish Climate activist and
2019 Time “person of the year” is expected to urge world and business leaders in Davos
to enact stronger policies. Yahoo reports Swedish activist Greta Thunberg
marched with 10,000 protesters in the Swiss city of Lausanne on Friday and said “you
have not seen anything yet” before some head to Davos next week to challenge the global
financial elite to fight climate change. The 17-year-old, who launched the #FridaysforFuture
movement that has sparked worldwide protests, denounced a lack of government action to cut
heat-trapping emissions before it is too late. “So, we are now in a new year and we have
entered a new decade and so far, during this decade, we have seen no sign whatsoever that
real climate action is coming and that has to change,” Thunberg said in a speech in
Lausanne. “To the world leaders and those in power,
I would like to say that you have not seen anything yet. You have not seen the last of us, we can assure
you that. And that is the message that we will bring
to the World Economic Forum in Davos next week.” Protesters held signs including “Wake up
and Smell the Bushfires” and “It is late but it is not too late”.
