Teen Climate Activist Takes ZeroCarbon Yacht to UN Summit

a teenager got a hero's send-off as she set out on a mission to promote environmentalism I am one of the very very few people in the world who actually can do this and then I think I should take that chance to do this 16 year old Greta Sundberg of Sweden has been making waves even before this planned boat trip the young activist has traveled all over the world spreading her message about the urgency for world leaders to act on climate change before it's too late she knows the obstacles she faces but they're not stopping her they're always going to be people who don't understand or don't accept the United science and I mean I will just ignore them because I mean I'm only acting and communicating on the science and if they don't like that and I mean what have I got to do with that this week she boarded a zero-carbon yacht in the UK bound for the United States it will take about two weeks for her to get there but when she arrives she will speak at the UN climate action summit she doesn't know how many minds she will change but she says she can't stay silent in what she calls a fight for the future I'm not concerned about reactions what I'm concerned about is whether we we will do something or not whether the people in power will react and act with necessary force for inside edition calm I'm Mara Montalbano
