‘Build back better blah blah blah’: Greta Thunberg mocks Boris Johnson during youth climate summit in Milan

Youth climate activist Greta Thunberg lashed out at global leaders today over their promises to address the climate emergency, dismissing them as “blah, blah, blah”.

Speaking at a youth climate gathering in Milan, Greta said: "Build back better. Blah, blah, blah. Green economy. Blah blah blah. Net-zero by 2050. Blah, blah, blah."

Some 400 climate activists from 180 countries were invited to Italy’s financial capital for a three-day summit that will send its recommendations to a major United Nations climate summit in Glasgow Scotland that is due to begin on October 31.
