Teens’ message to lawmakers: Try harder on climate change

Swedish teenager Greta Thunberg spoke to members of Congress Tuesday during a special forum. Her goal was to demand fast action on climate change. “I know you’re trying,” she said, “but just not hard enough. Sorry.” Her tough words to Congress came two days before planned strikes around the globe. The global school walkout, called Youth Strike 4 Climate, is being planned in more than 100 different countries and almost 1,700 towns.
