OTTAWA — Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg is urging developing island nations to use the upcoming United Nations (UN) Security Council election as leverage to push Canada and Norway to step up their games on climate change. The 17-year-old from Sweden has become one of the most recognized climate activists in the world with her climate strike movement growing into a global phenomenon last year. She is the headline signatory on a letter to UN ambassadors of small island developing states, which says that Canada and Norway both give lip service to climate action but remain steadfast in their commitment to expand fossil fuel production and subsidizing oil companies.
