Greta Thunberg Mocks Russia's President After He Called Her A 'Poorly Informed Teenager'

Greta Thunberg Mocks Russia's President After He Called Her A 'Poorly Informed Teenager'

Greta Thunberg has been ridiculed and called every name under the sun over the past two weeks after she slammed world leaders at the UN Climate Summit for not doing enough on climate change.

She's been criticised by everyone; from regular folk, all the way up to presidents and prime ministers for causing 'needless anxiety' and has been told to 'shut up'.

The 16-year-old Swedish activist even got a diss from Russian President Vladimir Putin, who called her a 'poorly informed teenager'.

Speaking at an energy conference in Moscow, Putin said the teenager should go and explain to developing countries why they should continue to live in poverty.

Chairing a session called Energy Partnership for Sustainable Growth, he said: "I may disappoint you but I don't share the common excitement about the speech by Greta Thunberg.

"No one has explained to Greta that the modern world is complex and different and... people in Africa or in many Asian countries want to live at the same wealth level as in Sweden."

Well, Greta is owning that label and has even changed her Twitter bio to include the put down from Putin.

It's the same thing she did when US President Donald Trump made a similar criticism of her UN speech.

Quote tweeting a video in which Wired reported on environmental activist Greta's UN speech, Donald hit peak president of the United States.

Wired captioned their coverage of Greta's speech: "'People are suffering, people are dying, entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairytales of eternal economic growth.' Watch Greta Thunberg speak at the UN Monday morning."

Trump's response wasn't exactly enlightening, with him writing: "She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!"

But being the thick-skinned legend that she is, Greta subtly and expertly trolled Trump right back.

Rather than try to respond to him, she changed her Twitter bio to: "A very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future."

Sarcastic in itself, she left it at that. After all, we're taught not to give bullies the attention they crave, aren't we?

It's recently been revealed that Greta is the bookies favourite to win the Nobel Peace Prize next week which certainly will have capped off an incredible year for the young activist.
