French President Emmanuel Macron warned that Greta Thunberg & # 39; radically & # 39; and is likely to counteract & # 39; societies & # 39; after she filed a lawsuit against France and four other countries about their greenhouse gas emissions.
The Swedish environmental activist, 16, who gave a passionate speech when addressing world leaders at the 2019 Climate Action Summit in New York on Monday, filed a complaint with the United Nations.
Thunberg tweeted that she accused five countries of violating human rights by taking insufficient action to reduce the greenhouse gas level to the goal set in 2015 by the Paris climate agreement.

The petition named five countries – Germany, Turkey, Brazil, Argentina and France – under the Convention on the Rights of the Child, a 30-year ratified convention.
However, in response Macron told it Europe 1 that the decision of Thunberg & # 39; very radical & # 39; and probably would counteract & # 39; & # 39; and did not feel that France was blocking & # 39;
& # 39; All the movements of our youth – or our not-so-young – are useful, & # 39; he said. & # 39; But they should now focus on those furthest away, those trying to block the way, & # 39; he said.
The head of state also said he did not feel that neither the French government nor the German government were currently blocking the road & # 39 ;.

& # 39; When I see that we are going to close all our coal activities, stop the exploitation of hydrocarbons, that we are moving, I am not sure if this is the most efficient way, & he said.
It is after Thunberg made a fiery appearance on Monday at the United Nations climate summit where she burst into tears while furiously denouncing international delegates.
& # 39; I shouldn't be here. I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us for hope. How dare you. You stole my dreams and my youth with your empty words, & thundered the 16-year-old Swedish activist in her speech.
Thunberg was seen at UN headquarters with a furious expression on her face when US President Donald Trump heated up her entrance by walking in, flanked by news reporters.

Thunberg could barely control her anger as she entered the top behind Trump. He was not scheduled to participate in the summit seeking international action against global warming, but attended the conference for only 15 minutes
The UN summit met to have countries make plans to cope with global warming and rising fossil fuel emissions.
"There will be no solution or plans today that are in line with these numbers because these numbers are too uncomfortable and you are not mature enough to tell it the way it is," said Thunberg, who is usually not as emotional in her speeches . .
& # 39; You are abandoning us. The young people are starting to understand your betrayal. The eyes of all future generations are focused on you.
& # 39; And if you choose to make us fail, I say, we will never forgive you, & # 39; she added.

& # 39; Here, right now, we draw the line. The world is waking up and change is coming, whether you like it or not, & she said to the applause.
Thunberg didn't stop anything when she thundered at the UN climate summit against politicians and officials.
& # 39; You come to us young people for hope. How dare you? & # 39; she roared.
& # 39; You have stolen my dreams and my youth with your empty words, but I am one of the lucky ones. People suffer, people die, entire ecosystems collapse, & she said.
Trump was not originally scheduled to attend the summit because he is organizing a session on religious persecution in the same building.
On Monday morning he shook the entrance to Thunberg in the UN building. Video shows the moment Thunberg is seen in the UN headquarters main lobby and is told to stand aside by a security guard as President Trump entered the main entrance and entered the lobby flanked by reporters and cameras.
Thunberg was visible in the background with a lively expression on her face.
The president stayed at the conference for only 15 minutes.
