NEW YORK — Teenage Swedish climate activist  Thunberg was named Time’s youngest “person of the year” on Wednesday.

Thunberg, 16, has become the face of the youth climate movement, drawing large crowds with her appearances at protests and conferences over the past year and a half. Some have welcomed her activism, including her speeches challenging world leaders to do more to stop global warming. But others have criticized her sometimes combative tone.

“For sounding the alarm about humanity’s predatory relationship with the only home we have, for bringing to a fragmented world a voice that transcends backgrounds and borders, for showing us all what it might look like when a new generation leads,  Thunberg is TIME’s 2019 Person of the Year,” the media franchise said Wednesday on its website.

Thunberg was in Madrid on Wednesday, where she addressed negotiators at the U.N.’s COP25 climate talks.

    She is a product of the left based brainwashing in the schools all over the world. At 16 years old she doesn’t have a clue about the real world problems. Congratulations to Time for again proving why I don’t read this rag
