"The first time climate activist Greta Thunberg testified on Capitol Hill, in 2019, it was after she’d traversed the Atlantic Ocean in a solar-powered boat. Her appearance before Congress on Thursday was somewhat less dramatic, with the teenage Swedish climate activist materializing in Washington via videoconference from a sunny room in Stockholm.
“We have to end fossil fuel subsidies, stop new exploration and extraction, completely divest from fossil fuels and keep the carbon in the ground,” Thunberg said. She was speaking at a House Oversight Committee subcommittee hearing on subsidies to fossil fuel industries, which come in the form of tax breaks that amount to $15 billion per year from the federal government, as well as billions of dollars in other incentives. “I don’t believe for a second that you will actually do this,” she said."
