Youth environmental activist Greta Thunberg begins her voyage to New York to attend the United Nations summit using a carbon-free sailing boat, run by members of the Royal Monaco family.

The 16-year-old Swedish teenager who went on strike at school and inspired all children around the world to protest global warming, refused to board the plane as it released carbon dioxide into the air.

She, however, accepted an offer to sail on a Malizia II yacht with his father, Svante and a documentary filmmaker to record the trip, which enabled the teen to attend a UN summit in September.

The 18-meter-long boat is operated by Pierre Casiraghi, vice president of the Monaco Yacht Club and members of the Royal Family and the world-class sailor from Germany, Boris Herrmann.

The voyage is expected to take two weeks as the boat is forecast to be windy and will only be able to slow down though it can reach speeds of 70 kilometers per hour.

“The main objective is to arrive safely in New York,” Casiraghi said while making final preparations at Plymouth harbor.

Thunberg has been widely cited for climate issues after warning of global destruction if all parties do not respond to global carbon emissions and global warming.

Speaking to reporters before embarking on the cruise, the teen acknowledged the fact that not many people were ready to understand and accept science.

“I’m going to do what I usually do by ignoring them and telling them facts,” Thunberg said, referring to a recent visit to North America.
