'Let others speak': Teen activist Greta Thunberg shines light on other climate stories

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg on Monday arrived at the United Nations climate talks in Madrid where she addressed the media alongside young activists and indigenous groups.

Thunberg arrived in Madrid on Friday (December 6) after crossing the Atlantic on a catamaran and spending a few rest days in Lisbon.

In just over a year, Thunberg has inspired younger protesters with her Friday school strike, turning it into a global movement demanding action to slow the atmospheric warming that climate scientists say could ultimately endanger the survival of industrial societies.

The annual summit kicked off on December 2 with a call from U.N.

Chief Antonio Guterres not to be the "generation ... that fiddled while the planet burned."
