Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has made her opinion on Canada's record-breaking high temperatures pretty clear!

In a tweet on June 28 — one day after Canada broke its own all-time heat record — the 18-year-old warned that "This heat-wave is just getting started."

"Highest temperature ever recorded in the planet north of 50N latitude also shattered (44.4C from July 1941)," Thunberg wrote, responding to the news that Canada recorded sweltering temperatures of 46.6 C.

She went on to say that heat records are usually broken by decimal points "like a tenth of a degree," and particularly not in months like June.

"This heat-wave is just getting started," the activist said, before adding the hashtag "#FaceTheClimateEmergency."

On June 27, in the middle of a "heat dome" across western Canada, a village in B.C. reached a sizzling 46.6 C (116 F).

This broke Canada's all-time heat record of 45.0 C (113 F), which was set in Saskatchewan in 1937.
