A remarkable outing.

Outraged by what she heard, Greta Thunberg left a round table in which she was participating as part of the COP26 in Glasgow (Scotland) on Wednesday.

The event focused on carbon offsetting (or carbon credit), a device that allows companies to offset their CO2 emissions in exchange for climate-friendly actions, reports HuffPost.

“It's greenwashing!

The young Swedish environmental activist shouted as she left the room.

"Climate lies" according to Greta Thunberg

"Shell, BP and Standard Chartered are here in Glasgow to try to step up compensation and give polluters a free pass to continue polluting," Greta Thunberg then denounced on Twitter.

“Their plan could ruin the 1.5 ° C target.



The fossil fuel industry & banks caused are among the biggest climate villains.

Now @Shell @BP & @StanChart are here in Glasgow trying to scale up offsetting & give polluters a free pass to keep polluting.

Their plan could trash the 1,5 ° C goal.

The carbon credit "is often hypocrisy and it is everywhere at COP26", added the activist.

“Businesses and governments are trying to play with us but we are exposing their climate lies.

During the same round table, Greenpeace activists were present with placards denouncing the "scam" of carbon offsetting.
