In The News: Swedish Activist Finishes Her Sail Across The AtlanticAugust 30, 2019
We all have days when we take shortcuts to save time, but for Greta Thunberg, the Swedish 15-year-old climate activist, she took the old-school route to get from the U.K. to the U.S. for the U.N. climate summits in New York City.
This week, Thunberg and her team docked their zero-emission sail boat at Coney Island, a little bit behind schedule due to the rough seas they encountered on their two-week journey. BBC News has a quick summary of her journey. She’ll be speaking at the U.N. climate talks on Sept. 23.
