      On Sunday, teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg—who at the age of 15 addressed world leaders at the recent United Nations Climate Change Conference in Poland—appeared on CNN and delivered a stark message to a political class that she said had “failed” society.

      In response, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez—representative-elect for New York’s 14th Congressional District—tweeted a clip of the interview and used it to highlight the lack of young voices in the U.S House of Representatives.

      “The age difference between myself + oldest House members is ~60yrs,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in the tweet. “For better or worse, young people will live in the world Congress leaves behind. That’s why I focus on our future: addressing climate change & runaway income inequality, ending school-to-prison pipelines, etc.”
