Greta Thunberg says she will moderate her language after being recorded uttering insults
Swedish environmentalist Greta Thunberg said on Twitter on Wednesday that Will “neutralize” her language after being filmed chanting insults on Monday during a protest on the occasion of the COP26 climate summit in Glasgow, Scotland.

If I say something inappropriate, I promise to compensate by saying something nice,” he joked on his official account on the social network, alluding to the global goal of achieving a net zero of carbon emissions by 2050 to curb climate change.
The 18-year-old activist is in Glasgow to lead demonstrations and pressure political leaders to take concrete measures to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees this century, as stated in the 2015 Paris Agreement.
