She has risen to unprecedented levels of fame...

And her unwavering commitment to saving our planet continues to inspire people to live more sustainably every day.

Instead, calling it "a very contentious matter of public debate, and I will not do that, I will not express a view on a matter of public policy, especially one that is politically controversial," when questioned by Kamala Harris, the Democratic vice presidential nominee, and a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee.

So, naturally, Thunberg had something to say about her comments.
