In an interview with The Washington Post, Greta Thunberg said

If you call him a leader, I mean, it’s strange that people think of [Joe Biden] as a leader for the climate when you see what his administration is doing.

In an interview with The New York Times, Greta Thunberg said

I’m not saying that Joe Biden is good or his policies are close to being enough. They are not. [...] I’ve spoken to many world leaders, and sometimes I wish I had a hidden camera. People wouldn’t believe what they say. It’s very funny. They say: “I can’t do anything because I don’t have the support. You need to help me.” They become desperate. It’s like they are begging for me to help them persuade the public that we need climate action. What that tells me is people are underestimating their power and the power of democracy and of putting pressure on people in power. [...] They [world leaders] can’t do anything without support from voters. [...] If Trump wins that will be the spark that makes people angry enough to start protesting and really demanding things for the climate crisis. I think we can safely say that if Trump wins it would threaten many things.

At a demonstration in Brussels, Greta Thunberg said

Our political system is all about competition: you cheat when you can, because all you want to get is power. This must change. We just want politicians to listen to the scientists.

In an interview with the global media collaboration Covering Climate Now, Greta Thunberg said

Democracy is the only solution to the climate crisis, since the only thing that could get us out of this situation is … massive public pressure.

In an interview with Trevor Noah at The Daily Show, Greta Thunberg said

Only 2 percent of government spending has been spent on clean energy, and it just shows that we are not really taking this seriously, or at least world leaders are not taking this seriously. [...] The climate crisis hasn’t been treated as an emergency. [...] It’s a bit strange that the focus is often on individual action rather than on systemic action or government action.
