St. Greta The Offended Finally Arrives In Portugal For Climate (scam) Talks

I wonder how long it took?

Greta Thunberg Says 3-Week Voyage Across the Atlantic ‘Energized’ Her Climate Change Fight

Climate activist Greta Thunberg arrived in Portugal on Tuesday after a three-week voyage across the Atlantic Ocean, telling cheering supporters that the journey had “energized” her for the fight against climate change.

The Swedish teen, whose one-woman protests outside the Swedish parliament helped inspired a global youth movement, sailed into the port of Lisbon after making a last-minute dash back from the United States to attend this year’s U.N. climate conference.

Thunberg has been steadfast in her refusal to fly because of the amount of greenhouse gases emitted by planes, a stance that put her planned appearance at the meeting in doubt when the venue was moved from Chile to Spain a month ago.

“We’ve all been on quite an adventure,” Thunberg told reporters shortly after stepping off the catamaran La Vagabonde, on which she’d hitched a ride back home to Europe. “It feels good to be back.”

Three weeks? Let me ask, do most people have the time to take three weeks to cross the ocean? Will your work give you that much time off? Not too mention the 3 weeks to get back after a vacation? Do you even want to take 3 weeks? Maybe a languid week long voyage on a cruise ship, but, not a tiny sailboat crossing an ocean.

The white 48-foot (15-meter) yacht carrying Thunberg, her father Svante, an Australian family and professional sailor Nikki Henderson sailed into Lisbon amid blue skies, with a small flotilla of boats escorting it to harbor.

Her trip contrasted with the many air miles flown by most of the U.N. meeting’s 25,000 attendees.

Thunberg wanted a low-carbon form of transport to get to the climate meeting, which was switched at short notice to Spain from Chile due to unrest there.

The yacht leaves little or no carbon footprint when its sails are up, using solar panels and hydro-generators for electricity.

It’s funny, Time writers Barry Hatton and Frank Jordans forget to mention the boat’s captain taking a fossil fueled flight across the Atlantic, which wiped out any “carbon pollution” savings.

The article says she plans to stay in Lisbon for a few days before heading to Madrid for the conference. Will she be walking to Madrid, or riding a bike? What’s the carbon footprint of the hotel rooms and all the media following her around? Will she slam the 25,000 in attendance in Madrid, a goodly chunk of whom took fossil fueled trips?

    Teach
    The rule of thumb for modern jet passenger planes is 1/4 pound of CO2 per passenger per mile ( that is the figure given by BlueSky)
    The pro captain flew 3591 miles with a carbon footprint of 900 pounds (London to NYC)
    The current cost of carbon offsets is around 8$ per ton
    See how easy to go carbon neutral? Only 4$ for that flight

    • Nighthawk says:

      So St. Gretta’s refusal to fly is just virtue signaling? And in reality, she would have been better off flying than taking that sail boat made with lots of fossil fuels that uses solar panels that create a lot of toxic waste to produce and dispose of.

    Form over substance. The mantra of environgelical hypocrisy.

    HOW DARE YOU, GRETA!

    Stay in that Hotel that required fossil fuels to build
    Stay in that Hotel which uses fossil fuels to feed you and keep you warm.
    Walk the streets exhaling CO2.

    HOW DARE YOU, GRETA

    EAT from a menu that was created with fossil fuels.
    Eat food brought to you by fossil fuels.
    Eat food that was planted and harvested with fossil fuels.

    HOW DARE YOU, GRETA

    Sleep in a bed created with fossil fuels.
    Sleep in sheets and pillows and bedspreads created by fossil fuels
    Take a bath or shower brought to you courtesy of fossil fuels.
    Put on clothes MADE with FOSSIL Fuels.

    HOW DARE YOU, GRETA the OFFENDED

    Preach to us about destroying the planet when YOU, YOURSELF are sharing the destruction. As she looks around with feathers on her face, a drum stick in her mouth and blood on her hands.

    HOW DARE YOU DOOM AND GLOOD PREACH TO ME!!!!!! I will bitch slap you with this fossil fuel created ear of corn and stick the cob up your…..

    Now Greta. Please contain yourself, the Pope would be distressed, that is for his perverts to take care of the rest of the bitch slapping.

    • John says:

      Lol
      You certainly are emotional today
      Is this because I showed how easy it is to go carbon neutral ?
      A typical American leaves a carbon footprint of 12 tons per year
      This could be offset by buying carbon offsets for 72$
      That is lije one cup of cheap coffee a week
      Teach you probably save that much off your electric from being forced to give up incandescent bulbs

        It was weird enough when Bolshevik Bunny began having arguments with one of this cartoon characters, but we are in Gropin’ Joe (watch the little kids feel my legs) territory with 2 cartoon characters doing the fighting.

      • Bill589 says:

        Carbon neutral? Did you stop breathing?

      • gitarcarver says:

        Sorry John, but you didn’t show how to go “carbon neutral” at all.

        What you did show was how some can buy their way out of doing what they demand others to do when it comes to CO2 production.

        You gave the figure for the price of carbon offsets, but money doesn’t mean the source of the CO2 actually disappears. It doesn’t mean that the CO2 wasn’t produced.

        All you have shown is that the global warming scam is about money.

        And in most cases you want money from other people because you hate those who have more money than you do. You aren’t willing to pay for or do the things that you want others to do and instead spout nonsense daily.

        You not only hate freedoms, you hate the truth because all the left has is hate.

      • Jl says:

        So John, if I pay 72$ that means I won’t produce any carbon? Please show us how that would work down here on planet earth.

        • Kye says:

          It’s the fantasy world of the American Leftist. Just like gun free zones will stop crazies from killing people, or a government takeover of health insurance will lower costs, and requiring ID’s is “voter suppression” the act of paying someone else magically vanishes your carbon footprint.

          As John Tetzel said collecting indulgences: “When in the box the money rings a soul from purgatory springs”. John’s $72 carbon contrition makes him a better person than you or me.
