For climate activist Greta Thunberg, success at the upcoming U.N. climate conference will come only if world leaders honestly admit that their action is not living up to their words. The summit, taking place next month in Glasgow, Scotland, aims to secure pledges by the world's nations to limit the global temperature from rising more than 1.5 degrees Celsius above the pre-industrial average. "We are so, so far behind what would be needed," the 18-year-old told Reuters in an interview at the kitchen table of her two-bedroom Stockholm apartment on October 6, after returning home from high school.
