The 17-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg showed support for Democrat Joe Biden, urging voters concerned about the environment to vote for Biden.

Thunberg said in a tweet that she never engages in party politics, but that “the upcoming US elections is above and beyond 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 sparked a global climate protest movement after striking outside the Swedish parliament in 2018 and was named Time Magazine’s Person of the Year in 2019.

President Trump has publicly mocked the teen climate-change fighter while also reversing over 100 environmental protections since he took office.

In contrast, Biden has proposed a $2 trillion climate plan that aims to be 100% carbon-free power by 2035 and invests in clean power and infrastructure, mass transit, energy-efficient buildings and housing, and sustainable agriculture.

Thunberg joins other environmental advocates and experts in endorsing Biden including Scientific American, who made its first presidential endorsement in 175 years, League of Conservation Voters, and a coalition of over 80 scientists and climate experts.
