Washington is expected to seek to restore its credibility on climate change through fresh pledges at the U.S.-led summit
April 19 (Reuters) - Environmental activist Greta Thunberg said on Monday she hoped a planned U.S.-led summit this month on tackling the climate crisis would start treating it as a real crisis.
"We can have as many as summits as we want... (but) as long as we are not treating the crisis as a crisis we will not be able to achieve any major changes," she said while attending a briefing by the World Health Organization (WHO) on the COVID pandemic as a guest.
"We cannot try to solve this crisis with the same approach that got us into it in the first place. We need to start treating the crisis like a crisis," Thunberg added.
