Greta Thunberg arrives in New York after supposed zero-carbon trip by sea

Greta Thunberg has arrived in New York after crossing the Atlantic Ocean through a yacht with allegedly no carbon footprint. The 16-year old has been a very controversial figure as she attempts to spearhead efforts in climate advocacy. She sailed via a yacht instead of a plane because it would allegedly produce zero carbon emissions.

So the blowhard and her multimillion dollar carbon footprint gimmick finally showed up? She's hilariously ironic.

Imagine doing literally nothing but crying in front of various parliaments and being able to afford a boat.

See?! The Green New Deal can work just fine! We don't need any evil airplaines to get from one country to another, whena month on a zero emission boat will do the trick, so quit being such assholes to the Earth! Notice there are no right wing sources for this story! Haha! Whatsa matter Trumpsters, scared to face reality?? We are using the first ever United Science to sail around the world! You thought you'd never see the day that science could be considered settled and beyond question but you are seeing now from a teenager no less, you impetuous fools...

She could’ve just used a different sailboat... one that doesn’t require the crew to be sent by aircraft. One that doesn’t require solar panels... Her boat is a big massive sea Prius. She isn’t saving anything (rather the opposite, it’s a massive waste and it would’ve been better if she had just flown) she’s just virtue signaling to everyone how such a good little git she is.

This is a ridiculous and pathetic charade, started by AlGore and cheered on by non-critical thinkers.

The Boat had 16 others tailing it for "security" , the crew of the boat is going to fly back to europe while another Crew will fly to the US to pick up the boat and bring it back There is nothing "green" about all of this And btw it is confirmed that Greta suffers from Aspergers syndrome and potentially a Form of down syndrome aß well

"Hundreds of fans, including fellow teens from across the globe and activists with signs bearing her face, gathered near the North Cove Marina to welcome Thunberg to the city" From around the globe? Did they also sail or ride bikes??? This publicity stunt actually made a larger carbon footprint than if it didnt happen. Cars, boats and planes brought these people to record and cheer for her, void of all self awareness.

Great job Greta! I'm behind you and your cause all the way. When governments can only tell you not to strike, don't protest, be quiet, and the willfully uninformed look for straw man or ad hominem attacks, you know you're winning.
