Washington D.C.
Once I’d settled into the cab and headed toward City Center, I found myself pulling up the photo again. There was former President Barack Obama giving a fist bump to Swedish teen climate activist Greta Thunberg, who had visited with him just the day before to discuss the climate crisis. Along with the photo, Obama tweeted that Thunberg is “already one of our planet’s greatest advocates” and that our future will be shaped “by young leaders like her.”
