Greta Thunberg's zero carbon journey: 'I might feel a bit sea sick'


Climate change activist Greta Thunberg will spend two weeks travelling across the North Atlantic on a boat with no toilets, kitchens or privacy.

Greta, 16, has stopped flying due to environmental reasons, but is due to attend a crucial climate change conference in New York.

She told the BBC that travelling by boat sends a signal that "the climate change crisis is a real thing".

Electricity on the boat will solely come from wind turbines and solar panels, meaning the journey has a zero carbon footprint.

WTF kind of sailboat is it that takes passengers across an ocean and has no galley or head?

Is she on a Laser or a Flying Scot :unsure:

Also note the boat damn well does have a carbon footprint unless it is a random log that they found................ :rolleyes:

they are very careful to say "the journey has a zero carbon footprint" not that the boat or freeze dried food she will carry has a zero carbon footprint.

just goes to show you how wacked out of their minds the liberal left is.

want to help out?

the solution

to pollution

is population

what a load of nonsense,

GRP/wood/steel/alu all have a carbon footprint

solar panels have a carbon footprint

wind generators have a carbon footprint

batteries have a carbon footprint

breathing has a carbon footprint

taking a shit in the ocean has a carbon footprint.

She will cross on Malizia, the IMOCA (Vendée Globe 60ft monohull) from Boris Hermann.

A 60 foot boat has no galley or head? Really?????
It's a single-handed offshore race boat : the galley is most likely a Jetboil stove and the head a carbon fiber (weigh-savings...) bucket. Deal with it!

Eventhough it is not the same boat, here is a video on another IMOCA 60. The "galley" is shown at 3:30... Malizia must be pretty close to that...

It's just been on the news. The bucket for this trip is plastic, not carbon, and has "Poo only" written on it, so she'll have to pee over the transom? Jetboil stove and freeze-dried. She said she was prone to sea sickness. Presumably with the IMOCA they will go south of the Azores? Still going to be a bumpy ride. Mr. Herman seemed to revel in pointing out how tough it will be for him, substantially sailing alone, though they did show her joining in on the pedestal. All good exposure for the sponsors, though, and a good reality check for her....

Hope she doesn't fart a lot.  Carbon footprint, you know. 

And she is self described as autistic.

whatever else she was doing fine..  but that statement there  , is what i'm talking..  hopefully she'll get over her misery quickly or it's going to be a looong journey..

Jfc, an open 60 with no carbon footprint? Each meter of raw pre preg is covered on two meters of plastic. The amount of landfill produced in one of these builds is staggering.

Again, it's the journey, not the boat or the equipment or the food or anything else. It's the journey, the voyage, the movement only that she is talking about.

But even that is BS as there will certainly be some motoring at each end.

This is much more, maybe 100%, about her values validating in front of her equally wacko peers: "Lookit me!! I am sooooo much better'n you!"

If anyone wants to show her up ask her how racial diversity is demonstrated by her voyage and doesn't that just clearly demonstrate her white nationalist tendencies?

Just another political stunt.

It falls into much the same category as taking a private jet to the conference.

Who gives a high carbon footprint shit?

As Parma indicated, she'd make a more important contribution by not having kids.

Are they going to be throwing their shit bucket into New York Harbor?

An Open 60 as a "low impact" travel device is a like a Formula 1 car being carbon free*

* as long as you get in at the top of a hill and roll to the bottom :rolleyes:

Good luck, crazy person. We’ll be here waiting for your return. Just don’t take a dump overboard near our shore. Fecal coliform is a nuisance in our waterways thanks to you organic hippies.

Pretty sure nobody that has posted here has defended that.  Pretty sure all they've said is that her trip is not going to be "zero emissions" even just for the journey, and that pretending otherwise is inaccurate.
