Time magazine's Person of the Year.
It's an annual message to the world's other 7.7 billion people
that you suck.
And this year's honoree is an obvious choice.
This was just announced moments ago.
The Time Person of the Year
is 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg.
-(cheering and applause) -You remember when the Swedish teen
took on U.N. world leaders
-at the Climate Change Summit. -Mm-hmm.
I mean, 16 years old. Congratulations to her.
She had a passionate plea garnering a lot of attention.
And for way too long,
the politicians and the people in power
have gotten away with not doing anything at all
to fight the climate crisis and the ecological crisis.
But we will make sure
that they will not get away with it any longer.
(cheering and applause)
Yeah.
Greta Thunberg has been named
Time magazine's Person of the Year.
And she must have been so excited when they told her.
It was like, "Great news, Geta-- Greta.
"We're gonna cut down a million trees
and print your face on them!"
She's like, "Uh..." "And then we're gonna put them
on airplanes and send them all over the world!"
For real though, it's so cool to be named Person of the Year
while you're still in high school. Right?
All the other kids are like, "Oh, I was voted
Most Likely to Succeed,"
and Greta's slapping her magazine, like,
"I already succeeded, bitch."
Plus, you realize now she doesn't have to fill out
a college application. Yeah.
She can just show them this.
Although it is gonna be awkward when she sends it to Harvard,
and they're like, "Wait a second,
Aunt Becky told us her daughter was Person of the Year."
