Taking to Twitter, she wrote: “#COP26 has been named the must excluding COP ever. This is no longer a climate conference. This is a Global North greenwash festival. A two week celebration of business as usual and blah blah blah.”
Responding to the tweet, the Socialist Party echoed Thunberg’s sentiments by saying world leaders are “falling completely short of the type of immediate transition that the science demands”.
She accused politicians of “pretending to take our future seriously, pretending to take the present seriously” and wished for: “No more blah blah blah, no more whatever the f*** they are doing inside there.”
She later sang, in a Scottish accent, that “you can shove your climate crisis up your a***.”
The conference is one of the most important climate events since the 2015 Paris Agreement as world leaders come together to discuss how to tackle the climate emergency.
The key goals of COP26 are to secure global net-zero by 2050, keep 1.5 degrees within reach, adapt to protect communities and natural habitats, mobilise finance, and work together to deliver on climate promises.
