Teen climate change activist Greta Thunberg demonstrated support for Democrat Joe Biden on Saturday, urging environmentally concerned voters to make their voices known in the U.S. presidential election.

“In a tweet, the Swedish 17-year-old said she never participated in party politics, but that” the forthcoming US elections are above all that.

“From a climate perspective it’s very far from enough and many of you, of course, supported other candidates. But, I mean…you know…damn! Just get organized and get everyone to vote #Biden,” she wrote.

Thunberg, who, after striking outside the Swedish parliament in 2018, sparked a global climate protest movement, may foster engagement among younger voters who are usually less likely to vote than older Americans.

U.S President Donald Trump mocked the teen activist after Thunberg was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2019, tweeting that she wanted to “check on her anger management issue, then go to a good old-fashioned film with a friend.”

Trump also commented sarcastically on Thunberg’s speech at last year’s United Nations climate summit, in which she angrily criticized world leaders for failing to combat climate change.

Thunberg and the Campaign for Fridays for the Future were nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize
this year, which was awarded to the World Food Program of the United Nations on Friday.

Trump, a Republican, has concentrated on the elimination of the climate policy of former President Barack Obama to free the oil and car industries from the costs of legislation aimed at protecting the health and the environment, while Biden focuses on a new massive green infrastructure.
