Young people are increasingly leading the push to address climate change. But based on the commitments to reduce planet-warming emissions, key world leaders still aren't willing to take the transformative action scientists say we need.

DAVOS, Switzerland — Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg told policymakers at the World Economic Forum (WEF) on Tuesday that time is running out to effectively tackle an intensifying climate crisis.

LSU's defense has helped mold LSU's offense into the nation's best

  LSU's defense has helped mold LSU's offense into the nation's best While LSU's offense has made headlines all season, the Tigers' growth is due in no small part to defensive coordinator Dave Aranda.For what may be the last time during the 2019 season, an LSU offense that has set and reset school and conference records was rocked on its heels by an opposing defense. Offensive coordinator Steve Ensminger was not amused, and told Aranda as much in colorful, expletive-laden terms.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg , 16, addressed the U.N.'s Climate Action Summit in New York City on Monday. Here's the full transcript of Thunberg 's speech, beginning with her response to a question about the message she has for world leaders . "My message is that we'll be watching you.

Thunberg , 16, says governments have betrayed young people by their climate crisis failure: ‘You are still Trump has vowed to pull the US out of the Paris agreement, while other major powers are wary of Thunberg said that world leaders were endangering children by ignoring climate breakdown.

Speaking during a panel session entitled "Forging a Sustainable Path Towards a Common Future," the 17-year-old cited the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report from 2018 as she delivered prepared remarks to a packed audience.

The IPCC report states the remaining carbon budget would need to fall below 570 gigatons of carbon dioxide (CO2) over the coming years if the world is to have a 67% chance of limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius.

But, Thunberg said: "With today's emissions levels, the remaining budget is gone in less than eight years. These aren't anyone's views. This is the science."

Joe Burrow leads the USA TODAY Sports all-bowl team

  Joe Burrow leads the USA TODAY Sports all-bowl team Joe Burrow had a College Football Playoff for the ages and leads the USA TODAY Sports all-bowl team along with several of his LSU teammates.There are a number of ways to quantify Burrow's final two games, first in the Peach Bowl and then on Monday night in New Orleans against the defending national champions. His five touchdown passes against Clemson gave him 60 on the season, or one more than LSU had compiled across the previous four seasons combined. He accounted for 14 scores (12 passing and two rushing) in the two wins, just one off Akron's season-long total as a team.

In this passionate call to action, 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg explains why, in August 2018, she walked out of school and organized a strike to raise awareness of global warming, protesting outside the Swedish parliament and grabbing the world 's attention.

"I've been repeating these numbers at nearly every speech I've given for the last 18 months."

"I know you don't want to talk about this," Thunberg continued, before adding that she intends to keep repeating herself until the appropriate action is taken.

Her comments come as policymakers and business leaders arrive in Switzerland for the start of the WEF's four-day annual conference, with those in attendance scheduled to focus on the intensifying climate crisis.

Conservative States Seek Billions to Brace for Disaster. (Just Don’t Call It Climate Change.)

  Conservative States Seek Billions to Brace for Disaster. (Just Don’t Call It Climate Change.) The Trump administration is about to distribute billions of dollars to coastal states mainly in the South to help steel them against natural disasters worsened by climate change. But states that qualify must first explain why they need the money. That has triggered linguistic acrobatics as some conservative states submit lengthy, detailed proposals on how they will use the money, while mostly not mentioning climate change. But states that qualify must first explain why they need the money.

Greta Thunberg is angry, and not just about climate change. And, while Thunberg is sometimes emotional about her cause she says that's because she's appalled and frustrated that the world isn't doing enough to Thunberg was upset by the response of the world leaders in the UN HQ this week.

Sixteen-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg spoke at the United Nations Climate Change Action Summit on Monday. I shouldn't be up here," said Thunberg , who began a lone protest outside the Swedish parliament more than a year ago that culminated in Friday's global climate strikes.

The event, which is often criticized for being out of touch with the real world, has said it aims to assist governments and international institutions in tracking progress toward the Paris Agreement and the UN's Sustainable Development Goals.

It follows the hottest year on record for the world's oceans, the second-hottest year for global average temperatures and wildfires from the U.S. to the Amazon to Australia.

As Trump lashes out at ‘prophets of doom’ in Davos, Greta Thunberg calls for climate action

  As Trump lashes out at ‘prophets of doom’ in Davos, Greta Thunberg calls for climate action The world, Thunberg said Tuesday, needs to “treat this crisis with the importance it deserves.” Thunberg’s remarks echoed her prior warning in Davos last year, when she told world leaders: “I don’t want your hope. I don’t want you to be hopeful. I want you to panic. I want you to feel the fear I feel every day. And then I want you to act.” Your browser does not support this video require(["binding"], function (binding) { binding("wcVideoPlayer", "#video_player_e0758323-baae-4b1f-ada2-69822bf4a073").

'Pretty much nothing has been done'

Thunberg was catapulted to fame for skipping school every Friday to hold a weekly vigil outside the Swedish Parliament in 2018.

She was recently named Time Magazine's Person of the Year for 2019 after sparking an international wave of school strikes — also known as "Fridays for Future." Last year, millions of children took part in rallies around the world to protest against political inaction over climate change.

When asked to reflect on what, if anything, had improved in recent years, Thunberg replied: "In one aspect, lots has happened that no one could have predicted."

"The climate and the environment is a hot topic right now and a lot of that is thanks to young people pushing," Thunberg said Tuesday.

"But, of course, if you see it from another perspective, pretty much nothing has been done since the global emissions of CO2 (have) not reduced. That, of course, is what we are trying to achieve among other things."

"It will require much more than this. This is just the very beginning," she added.

Speaking at the same event in late January 2019, Thunberg told those gathered in Davos that she wanted them to "panic" and to "act as you would in a crisis."

"I want you to act as if our house is on fire. Because it is," Thunberg said at last year's forum.
