Another chant went: "The seas are rising, and so are we!"

Thunberg gained worldwide attention just more than a year ago when she called on students around the world to take part in a school walkout to protest climate change, a movement she has dubbed #FridayforFuture.

The teenager became a celebrity past year by playing hooky to encourage Swedish politicians to pay attention to what she calls "a war on nature". Another rhyming slogan used by activists was "No more coal, no more oil, keep the carbon in the soil".

"But I'd like to see each of us youth talking to our elders, being that bridge, because it really can't be just one person". I can feel a change coming and it feels good. "It has to be a movement", he added. "My goal is to kick off the decade of the Green New Deal on September 20".

Greta said the climate crisis is the biggest humanity has ever faced. "I also want to experience having children, having grandchildren and them to not be like 'what have you brought me in to?'" said Pilcher.

Thunberg's team has countered the criticism and has said the flights will be "offset".

"When we knew Greta would be here, we knew we could not miss it".

The 16-year-old sailed into New York Harbor on Wednesday to attend the UN Climate Action Summit after a 2-week journey across the Atlantic in a zero-carbon emissions boat. Thunberg will soon speak at the UN Climate Action Summit, but MP Davies took aim at the 1975 for using carbon-based transport for their upcoming world tour.

Swedish teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg has arrived in NY after travelling for 15 days on a sailboat.
