Putin criticizes Thunberg's UN speech

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday took aim at teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg, telling an energy forum he did not share the excitement about her United Nations speech last month.

Rough Cut (no reporter narration).

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Wednesday (October 2) dismissed environmental activist Greta Thunberg as a kind but poorly informed teenager manipulated into making unrealistic demands in her United Nations speech last month.

Speaking at an energy conference in Moscow, Putin also said that it had been deplorable that Thunberg was being used by some groups - which he did not name - to achieve their own goals.

Thunberg, 16, gave an impassioned address at the United Nations in New York this week, after millions of people world-wide joined a climate strike protest last Friday in the run-up to a U.N.

Climate summit.

NYC Restaurants To Add Covid-19 Surcharge

(CNN) New York City diners may soon see a Covid-19 surcharge on their bills as the restaurant industry continues to hobble due to the coronavirus pandemic. The New York City Council passed a bill on Wednesday 46-2 that would allow restaurants to charge as much as 10% on customers dining indoors or outdoors to help cover Covid-19 expenses. Labeled the "COVID-19 Recovery Charge," the surcharge does not add to the bill's overall tax, nor applies to delivery or takeout orders.
