Greta Thunberg urges US voters to support Joe Biden in election

Stockholm: Teen climate-change activist Greta Thunberg showed support for Democrat Joe Biden on Saturday, urging voters concerned about the environment to make their voices heard in the US presidential election.

The Swedish 17-year-old said in a tweet that she never engages in party politics, but that "the upcoming US elections is above and beyond all that".

Trump also sarcastically commented on Thunberg's speech to a United Nations climate summit last year, in which she angrily denounced world leaders for failing to tackle climate change by demanding: "How dare you?".

Thunberg and the Fridays for Future movement was nominated for this year's Nobel Peace Prize, which on Friday was awarded to The United Nations' World Food Programme.

Trump, a Republican, has focused on dismantling former President Barack Obama's climate agenda to free the energy and auto industries from the costs of regulations meant to protect health and the environment, while Biden has a focus on a new massive green infrastructure.
