Greta Thunberg joins Asian charge against Vietnam coal plant

Mitsubishi Corp. and megabanks explain that Vung Ang 2 will boost livelihoods

TOKYO -- Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg has lent her support to young climate protesters in Japan, South Korea and Vietnam to oppose the Vung Ang 2 coal-fired power plant project in Vietnam.

"Don't be silent," she said in a video message to Asian student protesters who have been making the case that the addition of a coal plant that emits greenhouse gases will have catastrophic consequences for future generations.
