Greta Thunberg denounced politicians and the media recently for ignoring a looming climate cataclysm, saying that they were failing her generation with their inaction in the face of a world on fire.
Several thousand people attended a rally in the southwestern English city of Bristol to see Thunberg, the teenage activist who has reprimanded governments across the world over climate change.
"I will not be silenced while the world is on fire - will you?" said Thunberg. "This emergency is being completely ignored by the politicians, the media and those in power. Basically nothing is being done ... despite all the beautiful words."
