via: Getty ImagesLet's take a look back at what made Greta Thunberg a global figure in the first place.
Thunberg is the face of the climate change movement.
via: GettyThanks to her relentlessly passionate activism, the seventeen-year-old Swedish environmentalist has skyrocketed to international fame.
But where did it all begin?
via: GettyStarting one day in August 2018, a then fifteen-year-old Thunberg decided to skip school to sit outside Sweden's Parliament in Stockholm with the simple sign, “Skolstrejk För Klimatet" - translating to “School Strike for Climate."
For 3 weeks, the teenager would sit in silent protest outside of Parliament alone...
via: GettyAnd vowed to not stop until her government had done something about the climate change crisis. And it didn't take long for her message to catch on.
Photos of the teen sitting in protest went viral on social media...
via: GettyAnd, suddenly, millions of people were inspired.
Within a year, her message had spread like wildfire...
via: GettyAnd millions of people all over the world had taken to the streets to fight against climate change.
It was a whirlwind year for the teenager.
via: GettyThunberg attended numerous marches and protests all over the world and was even invited to the UN Climate Conference in New York, which she traveled to on a zero-emissions boat.
Her damning speech went viral...
via: GettyThe activist blasted world leaders and politicians for their lack of action regarding climate change. "How dare you," she exclaimed. "I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean, yet you all come to us young people for hope. How dare you?"
And, fast forward to 2020...
via: GettyGreta Thunberg has become somewhat of a household name.
She was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize last year...
via: GettyAnd was declared as TIME's Person of the Year for 2019.
She has risen to unprecedented levels of fame...
via: GettyAnd her unwavering commitment to saving our planet continues to inspire people to live more sustainably every day.
Two years after she first took a stand on the so-called climate crisis, she spoke with The Guardian.
"Looking back [over two years], a lot has happened."
via: Getty Images"Many millions have taken to the streets … and on 28 November 2019, the European parliament declared a climate and environmental emergency," said Thunberg.
But, it's been far from sunshine and rainbows, according to Thunberg.
She goes on to say we are "still in a state of denial."
via: Getty Images"When it comes to action, we are still in a state of denial. The gap between what we need to do and what’s actually being done is widening by the minute."
via: Getty Images"Effectively, we have lost another 2 crucial years to political inaction."
Essentially, Thunberg believes we have done nothing to actually stop the problem.
via: Getty ImagesIt's pretty damming stuff.
Now Thunberg has voiced her opinion on the upcoming presidential election.
I never engage in party politics. But the upcoming US elections is above and beyond all that. It goes without saying that from a climate perspective Biden-Harris is very far from being even close to what’s needed, and many of you understandably had other preferred candidates. But, I mean… you know… damn!
"Just get organized and get everyone you know out to vote! #BidenHarris2020"
Ps. “Biden will not ban fracking. That’s a fact" says Kamala Harris. But the American people no doubt have the power to make him do it. And much more than that... To register visit link in bio or follow @sunrisemvmt @thisiszerohour @onemillionofus for instance.But who will win? Only time will tell.
