The lights of Long Island and New York City ahead," she tweeted early Wednesday.

NEW YORK — Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg sailed into New York Harbor on Wednesday in a zero-carbon emissions vessel, completing her nearly 14-day journey from England to take part in a United Nations climate summit.
The 16-year-old Swedish schoolgirl, who set sail from Plymouth, England, on Aug. 14, was greeted by cheers, chants and singing as her silver sailboat, the Malitzia II, cruised past the Statue of Liberty through choppy waves and rain to drop anchor in Manhattan’s yacht harbour.
“All of this is very overwhelming and the ground is still shaking for me,” a seemingly bashful Thunberg, clad in a dark blue jumpsuit, told a gathering of reporters and activists who greeted her and the crew of the Malitzia II on land.
“It’s insane that a 16-year-old had to cross the Atlantic Ocean to make a stand on the climate crisis. This of course is not something I want everyone to do,” she said.
Thunberg made her trans-Atlantic journey carbon emission-free by travelling on an 18-metre yacht, which is equipped with solar panels and underwater turbines that produce electricity onboard, along with a large black sail carrying the message: “Unite behind the science.”
The boat has no shower or toilets, and those aboard including Thunberg’s father and crew members ate cold canned food throughout the trip.
Thunberg, who first drew international attention last year when she started missing school on Fridays to protest against political inaction on climate change, said she planned to take part in a demonstration outside the United Nations in New York on Friday.
But first, she said, she planned to: “Eat fresh food, not freeze-dried, not be wet and to clean myself.”

Peppered with questions from reporters about her message for U.S. President Donald Trump, a climate change skeptic, Thunberg suggested she was not interested in butting heads with the Republican.
“My message for him is just listen to the science, but he obviously doesn’t do that. No one has been able to convince him of climate change, the urgency, why should I be able to do that?” she said. “So I’m just going to focus on spreading awareness.”
In addition to the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York, Thunberg intends to attend the COP 25 climate change conference in Santiago, Chile, in December, planning to make her way there without using air travel.

The Little girl is a prop. She's a tool of her parents and their backers (publishers & investors, etc...). The 'hate' is against the hypocrisy & lies. I believe your statement is a deflection against calling out the hypocrisy & lies as a straw man.

Her parents are pimping her out for their own interest, no different than brainwashing and turning out a street walker for monetary gain.

Is it any different than parents shopping their kids around for little and big screen roles? Who benefits when they are children? Who gets hurt when they are not desirable in the entertainment field?

Rubbish.

Every parent that puts their kid in hockey are "pimping them out" to their own interests. They want a pro kid so that they'll get rich. Hockey comes from the parent's belief system, not from that of the kids, for the most part. Same with music lessons, dancing lessons, tap dancing lessons ... taking them to church.

You have every right to "indoctrinate" your children as you see fit and each and every one of us does it in subtle or not so subtle ways.

Yes. We know. You hate this particular kid.

Oh, brother.

Glad you agree

I'm sure she was a sweet little girl before indoctrination, what will she be when the church of climatology is finished with her. Keep this in mind her time is close to being irrelevant again, is she gonna be able to adjust? Or is she gonna turn into an addict without the attention? Either way she is going to need help to adjust to obscurity.

No doubt, you were a sweet, little kid before indoctrination, too.

Ultra right wing, Neo-Nazi clap-trap that was discredited decades ago but is coming back because our population is do poorly educated, now.
That kind of indoctrination.
Yeah, unlike the hard-core commie-socialist bullshit that's being peddled and force-fed to our kids that has never worked anywhere, ever.

What Commie bullshit?

I work in the Private Sector exclusively, believe in balanced government budgets and think that we need to get back to educational basics.

I don't believe in rounding up refugee immigrants and locking them up in concentration camps, indiscriminate firearms ownership nor libertarian anarchy.

Yes, you are a true nazi all right AND a commie...and a globalist.

The nazis took away the guns of the Jews just before your weener buddy soros started helping put them on those trains.

...lol kinda reminds me of cliffy who can't even win one using other people's thinks.

Of COURSE you want to take away the guns from the people who need to protect themselves from people like you. I mean look at the death toll of the hundreds of millions you people are responsible for, and that's just in the last 150 years.
