Climate activist Greta Thunberg nears Lisbon port

Council

Thunberg refuses to fly because of the carbon footprint.

Climate activist Greta Thunberg was approaching Lisbon aboard a catamaran on Tuesday after crossing the Atlantic from New York, Reuters Television footage showed, before her appearance at a summit in Madrid to demand urgent action on global warming.

Thunberg, her father, and the crew aboard La Vagabonde sailed for 20 days from NY on a yacht that saved on carbon emissions and reduced their carbon footprint. "I'm doing this to sort of send the message that it is impossible to live sustainable today, and that needs to change".

"She has been a leader that has been able to move and open hearts for many young people and many people all over the world", Schmidt told The Associated Press at the summit in Madrid.

Posting on Instagram as she headed into the coastal capital, Greta shared a photograph of herself aboard the vessel and wrote: 'Heading into Lisbon!'

She wants senior officials gathered in Madrid to "finally understand the urgency" of climate change and cooperate internationally.

Thunberg hitched a renewable-energy ride from the United States, joining an Australian family on their 48-foot (15-meter) yacht. To speak the truth.

Doug Pederson praises Dolphins after Eagles' Week 13 loss
Philadelphia entered its very winnable Week 13 game against the Miami Dolphins at +148 across all sportsbooks. This is: the 3-9 Washington Redskins technically still have a chance at winning the division.

Some activists jumped into a nearby fountain while others threw them life-jackets.

"We need to work together to make sure that we secure future living conditions for humankind and that we fight for not only ourselves but for our children and for our grandchildren and for every single living being on earth", the teenage activist told reporters.

Her arrival came as the United Nations said this decade will be the warmest on record, with 2019 among the top three hottest years in history.

While full-year temperature measurements won't be available for several more months, the agency also said that 2019 is expected to be the second or third warmest year on record.

The World Meteorological Organisation (WMO) launched a report at the summit on Tuesday (local time) that found the past decade was nearly certain to have been the hottest on record.

Thunberg's arrival in Lisbon coincides with the release of a bleak report by the Geneva-based World Meteorological Organization.
