Washington - After voyaging thousands of miles across the Atlantic Ocean, climate activist Greta Thunberg arrived in the United States on Wednesday morning. The 16-year-old began the journey two weeks ago to reach the United Nations climate summit in New York without producing any carbon.
Amid a rising sun and pale yellow clouds, her boat floated near New York, in a picture she posted to Twitter on Wednesday morning. The sail reads the words, "Unite Behind the Science," Thunberg's call to action. If the tide allows, they will dock at North Cove Marina on Wednesday afternoon, Thunberg announced.
"Land!! The lights of Long Island and New York City ahead," Thunberg tweeted in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
