Comments Off on Greta Thunberg will sail across Atlantic to attend UN Climate Summits

Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old climate activist from Sweden, is faced with a dilemma: how will she get to the U.N. Climate Summit in New York City with out leaving a carbon footprint ? Enter Boris Herrmann and Pierre Casiraghi, professional sailors who offered the young activist a ride on their high-speed, zero-emissions sailboat the Malizia II . The sailboat journey will take two weeks to reach the New York Climate Summit. After New York, the group will venture on another trip to Santiago, Chile for the U.N. Framework Convention. Related: New report warns of extreme heat of 127 degrees or more in the US “This is pretty much where our future will be decided. By the year 2020, next year, the emission curve must have been bended steep downwards if we are to have a change to stay below 1.5 or 2 degrees of warming,” said Thunberg of the U.N. events. The crew has warned Thunberg the trip will not be glamorous, including no access to showers, air conditioning, refrigeration or fresh meals. There is also a chance that the seas could be rough. “I asked her if she was scared and she explained in a very analytical way that she thinks this voyage is safe, the boat has a lot of safety systems and is capable of sailing around the world in a race and therefore it’s a strong boat,” says Herrmann. The sailboat, Malizia II is one of only a few zero-emissions sailboats of its size in the world. It has solar panels and underwater turbines that generate electricity while the ship is sailing. Thunberg’s father will also be aboard the ship for the journey, along with a filmmaker to document their adventure. Thunberg has taken a year off from school in order to focus on her work as an outspoken climate activist. Via TreeHugger Image via Flickr
