A young campaigner who has been hailed by climate sceptics as the right's answer to Greta Thunberg has previously described a white nationalist who appeared to promote "white genocide" theories as one of her "inspirations".

Naomi Seibt, a 19-year-old from Münster, Germany, who styles herself as a "climate realist", has also had to deny she made remarks that could be seen as antisemitic following an attack on a synagogue last year.

Seibt has been described as the darling of climate change deniers and spoke at a small side event of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) – a high-profile annual meeting of rightwing activists in Washington that will also feature the US president, Donald Trump.
