She's hitching a ride on a sailboat with Australian YouTubers after nearly three eventful months spreading her climate message across North America. Among other events, she joined in climate strike rallies and protests from California to Colorado to North Carolina to Montreal. Thunberg has become a symbol of a growing movement of young climate activists after leading weekly school strikes in Sweden that inspired similar actions in about cities worldwide. In August, the teen activist sailed across the Atlantic Ocean to the United States on a zero emissions sailboat.
She has been a vocal critic of flying because it contributes to the greenhouse gas emissions that accelerate global warming. In September, Greta gave an impassioned speech before the United Nations Climate Action Summit, where she scolded world leaders for not acting quickly and decisively to combat climate change.
I shouldn't be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean," she said. How dare you? She also testified before the U. Congress in September before a joint hearing of two House committees on the global climate crisis. During the hearing, she had a simple message for American lawmakers: Do something.
Instead of planning a lengthy opening statement to start the hearing, Thunberg simply offered a copy of the global warming report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change that emphasizes the dire threat that human-caused global warming poses, along with the climate and economic impacts. And I want you to unite behind the science. And then I want you to take real action.

During a speech in Iowa City, Thunberg hammered the absurdity of it taking teenagers to make public figures take action locally and internationally.

Climate change: Over 11, scientists around the world declare a 'climate emergency'. So I reached out on social media to ask if anyone could help me find transport back to Europe," Thunberg said Tuesday.Updated December 06, The Australian couple who sailed Greta Thunberg across the Atlantic for the UN COP25 climate summit say people would be shocked to see how human and vulnerable the teen climate activist is.
Riley Whitelum and Elayna Carausu have crossed many oceans since they began sailing the world inbut never has the couple received a reception like the one that awaited them upon pulling into the port of Lisbon in Portugal on Tuesday morning local time.
The couple themselves are no strangers to the spotlight — their YouTube account documenting their voyages has more than 1. After three weeks at sea the teen climate activist had arrived in Europe for the international climate summit, which began on Monday in the Spanish capital of Madrid. The year-old had travelled from her native Sweden to California by boat, train and electric car and was planning to continue on to the next round of climate negotiations, originally scheduled to be held in Chile's capital, Santiago.
When the Santiago summit was cancelled due to political unrest, Ms Thunberg found herself on the wrong continent and in need of an environmentally-friendly way to cross the Atlantic. After seeing her Tweet for assistance Mr Whitelum and Ms Carausu, who sail the seas with their almost one-year-old son Lenny, said they felt compelled to answer her call.
After a week of preparation, which saw British professional yachtswoman Nikki Henderson fly in to assist the journey, La Vagabonde set sail from Virginia early on November The three Australians, the Brit and the two Swedes may have been strangers when they left, but after three weeks at sea the group forged a strong bond.
The Australians, who make a living out of filming their adventures and posting them to YouTube, said they looked forward to showing a different side to the teen. I mean when I'm looking around the boat for someone that I think might be able to help pull down a sail or something it's not going to be Greta. In little more than a year Ms Thunberg has become a household name, amassed millions of followers on social media and inspired a generation of climate activists.
Yet the teen's explosion into the public domain has also seen her used as a verbal punching bag for those who disagree with her message or her methods — with prime ministers and presidents among her most outspoken critics.
Ms Carausu said she had been surprised at how the teenager, whose ego she described as "microscopic", responded to all the attention. In a brief media conference upon her arrival in Lisbon, Ms Thunberg was asked how she felt about politicians blaming climate activists for current environmental problems. And when asked about being an "angry kid" the teen took her time to formulate her response but did not shy away.
But for those among the five who sailed alongside Ms Thunberg she was much, much more than angry. Mr Whitelum, who spoke to the ABC after having slept for 12 hours straight, said while the crossing had not been without its challenges it had been more than worth it.

Both said they would miss Ms Thunberg, her father and their many games of competitive Yahtzee, but had hopes they, along with Ms Henderson, would all stay in touch.
Ms Thunberg told the crowd on Tuesday she planned to spend a few days in Lisbon getting used to being on land again before heading to join the climate summit.This is the "I no longer have cable TV or go to the movies anymore tier level, tier".

Elayna Carausu and Riley Whitelum, whose YouTube channel Sailing La Vagabonde chronicles their life aboard a foot catamaran, responded to Thunberg's plea for transportationmade on social media earlier this month when the major United Nations climate meeting was moved to Spain from Chile. The year-old had already traveled halfway to the South American country when the UN changed the location of the December summit to Madrid, after Chile withdrew as host because of weeks of protests that paralyzed the nation.
Thunberg refuses to fly due to the high levels of emissions from air travel and instead uses boats, trains and electric cars to get around. Carausu and Whitelum told CNN they had no intention of sailing to Europe but made a last-minute decision to help Thunberg out after seeing her plea on social media. The couple say that since they contacted Thunberg last week, the teen has been helping them prepare for the 3, nautical mile journey, which should take between two and three weeks.
Whitelum admitted that he was originally hesitant about the journey -- not just because it's taking place out of season, but also because of their baby son. The couple say they're working with weather routers to help keep them on course and feel confident ahead of the journey, whose endpoint isn't yet decided.
