Thunberg, 19, has set her sights on world leaders. “They say they are doing something about the problem, while they are doing the opposite,” Al-Suwaidi said. “They can claim that they want the best for the climate, and at the same time they are expanding their country’s fossil infrastructure. They can say they are doing everything they can for the climate and at the same time they are opening new coal-fired power plants or building oil pipelines.”

“We are approaching the abyss,” said Thunberg, who appeared on the main stage where former Beatles Paul McCartney will perform later on Saturday. “Don’t let us come within an inch of the abyss.”
