Arron Banks criticised for 'sick joke' about Greta Thunberg

Sandra Phillips | 16 August, 2019, 14:40

The 16-year-old Swede, whose school strikes have inspired children across the world to protest against global warming, refuses to fly because of the carbon emissions caused by planes.

"Instead of speaking to me and to the school-striking children and teenagers they should be talking to actual scientists and experts in this area", she said.

"The objective is to arrive safe and sound in New York", Herrmann told AFP ahead of their departure.

Taking a sabbatical year from school, she will be joining large-scale climate demonstrations and speaking at the UN Climate Action Summit hosted by secretary-general Antonio Guterres in NY in September.

Ms Thunberg has never sailed before this week, and got seasick on their first journey out of Plymouth on Monday, but said she was looking forward to the adventure.

Thunberg, who was wearing a black waterproof jacket emblazoned with the slogan "Unite Behind the Science", was asked how she expected other people to travel across continents, given that not everyone could muster a racing yacht and crew. She said Banks should have "opened his wallet and offered to pay for the journey for Greta".

"I will just have to see, get on the boat and see what happens, and that is also very exciting".

"Hi Greta, I've just booked some long haul flights for my family to enjoy some winter sun on the beach this Christmas".

"We create an global opinion and movement so that people stand together and put pressure on the people in power".

But she says she has nothing to say to US President Donald Trump.

Her message has resonated well with many young people around the world, who joined an worldwide campaign encouraging students to ditch school every Friday to call on lawmakers to commit to reducing carbon emissions and halting climate change.

The yacht is made for racing, with foils, or wings, that lift it out of the water for a faster and smoother ride.

The youngster is crossing the Atlantic in the 60ft sailing yacht, which is fitted with solar panels and underwater turbines to generate zero-carbon electricity on board.

Thunberg, who has spent hours on trains across Europe to spread her message, was relaxed about the basic conditions.
