Greta Thunberg found a last-minute ride back across the Atlantic thanks to a pair of YouTubers after a crucial UN climate-change summit got moved from Chile to Spain
Associated Press Greta Thunberg is setting sail back across the Atlantic with an impromptu motley crew: two YouTuber Australians, their 11-month-old son, and a professional sailor. The Australian couple answered Thunberg's call for help getting back to Europe after the year's most important UN climate-change summit, COP25, was moved from Chile to Spain. It will take about three weeks to sail to Spain in the couple's 48-foot catamaran called "La Vagabonde." Thunberg should arrive just in time for COP25. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Greta Thunberg is hitching an impromptu boat ride back to Europe. The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist refuses to fly, because airplane travel has such a heavy carbon footprint — a single round-trip flight between New York and California generates roughly 20% of the greenhouse gases your car emits in a year. In Europe, this means she typically travels by train. See the rest of the story at Business InsiderNOW WATCH: A 1.1-trillion-ton iceberg broke off Antarctica, and scientists say it's one of the largest ever recordedSee Also:Hurricanes on the scale of Katrina and Harvey are now 3 times more likely than a century ago: 'We cannot hope to combat storms'What if all the world's supervolcanoes erupted at onceA virus from the measles family is spreading because of melting ice.
