Why 16-years-old Climate Activist took a yacht journey from UK to New York instead of flying

⛵ Climate activist Greta Thunberg sails into New York after a 15-day journey across the Atlantic.

The 16-year-old travelled on a zero-emissions yacht from the UK to the US rather than flying, in a bid to minimise her carbon footprint.

She and her crew made the 3,000 mile (4,800 km) voyage so she can attend UN climate summits in NYC and Chile.

Crowds cheered and shouted "go, Greta" as the Swedish teenager disembarked from the boat.

Shortly afterwards, she gave a press conference at the marina in New York, during which she urged people to "stand together" and "take action" on the climate crisis.

She added: "Let’s not wait any longer, let's do it now."
