A video released by the Brut India portal shows 16-year-old activist Greta Thunberg addressing the Indian PM, urging him to take concrete steps to tackle climate change.
This is not the first time Greta has been in the news for raising awareness about climate change.
"Dear Mr Modi, you need to take action now against the climate crisis, not just talking about it because if you keep going on like this, doing business as usual, and just talking about and bragging about the little victories, you are going to fail. And if you fail, you are going to be seen as one of the worst villains in human history in the future. And you don't want that," Greta Thunberg says in the video.

Earlier, Greta made headlines for her "school strike for climate change", in which she organised a sit-in outside the Swedish Parliament. She also addressed the United Nations Climate Change Conference in December 2018, saying, "We have not come here to beg the world leaders to care for our future."
"They have ignored us in the past and they will ignore us again. We have come here to let them know that change is coming whether they like it or not," she adds.
