Greta Thunberg has become one of the most recognizable faces in the world, and a new documentary series on BBC One tonight (Monday April 12) accompanies her on her mission on climate change.
But who is Greta and how did she get famous and what? was did she spat with former US President Donald Trump?

The program follows the impact of Covid-19 on their campaign and the challenges of convincing a world in crisis to face the possibility of another on the horizon.
In the first program, Greta travels through North America on her way to a UN climate conference in Chile.
Why is Greta Thunberg famous?
The now 18-year-old Greta became famous in 2018 at the age of 15 when she founded the “Fridays for the Future” movement in her Swedish homeland.
She encouraged school children to go on strike to urge governments around the world to take action against climate change.
In November 2018, a two-week strike broke out in front of the Swedish parliament, urging the government to cut emissions by 15 percent every year.
Four million young people took part in the strike in 161 countries, and she even went to the US to speak at the UN climate change summit.
I shouldn’t be standing here. I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean.
“This is all wrong,” she told the delegates.
“I shouldn’t be standing here. I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean.
“And yet you all come to me out of hope? How dare you!
“You stole my dreams and my childhood with your empty words.”
Does Greta have Asperger?
When she was eight years old, Greta suffered from depression after learning about climate change.
At 11, she stopped talking and lost 22 pounds in two months.
While looking for treatment, she was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder, and Selective Mutism.
She said during her 2018 campaign, “I was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome, Obsessive Compulsive Disorder and Selective Mutism.
“That basically means that I only speak when I think it is necessary. Now is one of those moments. “

What were your best responses to Donald Trump?
Their actions have drawn severe criticism in a number of areas, including former US President Donald Trump.
After Time Magazine named Greta Person of the Year, Mr. Trump tweeted, “So ridiculous.
“Greta has to work on her anger management problem and then watch a good old-fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, chill! “
After the 2020 US election, in which Mr Trump lost to Joe Biden and shared his feelings on Twitter (often in capital letters), Greta made an impressive comeback.
“So ridiculous,” she tweeted back to him.
“Donald has to work on his anger management problem and then watch a good old-fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, chill! “
And after Mr Trump was banned from Twitter for his unfounded and brand new comments, Greta gave her opponent one last dig.
It showed a picture of Mr. Trump boarding a helicopter as he was leaving the White House.

“So nice to see!”
