Climate crusader Greta Thunberg mocked her detractors last night by dressing as herself for Halloween – saying she terrifies her critics.
The teenage activist said she scared ‘a bunch of angry climate crisis deniers’ without having to dress up.
Posing in a black-and-white photo with her trademark ‘school strike for climate’ placard, she said she did not celebrate Halloween in Sweden but ‘thought I might give it a try’ to troll her critics.
The 16-year-old is currently touring North America and has drawn large crowds at environmental rallies.

‘So today is Halloween. I don’t celebrate it back home, but I thought I might give it a try,’ she wrote on Twitter last night.
‘And apparently when it comes to scaring a bunch of angry climate crisis deniers – I don’t even have to dress up!’
Thunberg’s activism has prompted an angry response in some quarters and the teenager drew the ire of Donald Trump at a UN summit in September.
