At a hearing on the impact of fossil fuels on climate change, activist Greta Thunberg calls on the U.S. to act now to cut its carbon emissions and says that if leaders choose not to act they will have to answer to their children and grandchildren. "You still have time to do the right thing and to save your legacies, but that window of time is not going to last for long. What happens then? We, the young people, are the ones who are going to write about you in the history books. We are the ones who get to decide how you will be remembered. So my advice for you is to choose wisely," Thunberg says. close
