    They had to make changes yesterday because of the strong waves near Ireland. They went to the coast of France instead. :(

    The night was bouncy and rough, but mostly everyone got some sleep. We are trying to find an organisation of space and storage and life.Everything is slow motion: dressing, cooking, etc. All ok so far and we will get used.

    i don't get it?
    What is the purpose...its not like she is traveling alone...she has an adult crew with her. She is just a passenger, so her "zero sailing experience" is a red herring

    WARNING!:

    Jim Sheridan‏ @Jim_Sheridan
    So many adult men writing “Hit Pieces” against Greta Thunberg... She’s a 16 year old girl and you’re high fiving each other over who’s written the nastiest “Sick Burn” comment? Seriously it’s embarrassing and you all look like total dicks! #GretaThunberg

    She also has a BAD diesel engine, just in case,.........She is a pure media creation which makes no sense whatsoever.

    Last line in the video: "She's not planning on meeting Donald Trump, saying it would be a waste of time." Yeah, cause it's all about HER.

    I hope she will convince AOC that this type of a travel should be implemented in the next 2 years because otherwise the Mother Earth will be angry at us all.

    The trip will take only 2 weeks, or longer (weather permitting), travelers poop in the bucket, no kitchen, no sinks, they are sleeping in a very crowded areas with a noise from turbines.

    All liberals should stop flying and sail for the presidency!

    Greta is showing them that it can be done! [thumbsup]

    You can now track Greta Thunberg’s voyage across the Atlantic Ocean
    The 16-year-old – who recently called out Donald Trump for not taking climate change seriously – embarked on her journey yesterday on a zero emission sailing boat, powered by solar panels and underwater turbines. She will be sailing for two weeks, along with her dad, Svante, and a filmmaker.

    After attending the UN Summit, Thunberg will kick off her climate demo tour across America before attending the UN climate conference in Santiago, Chile, in December via train and bus.

    I think it would be a GREAT idea if AOC was at-sea going between DC and NYC for about 6 months each year!

    it would lead us all onward to a totally green way of life!

    She is right about that. Donald Trump taking time out of his busy schedule to meet with her would be a waste of Donald Trumps valuable time.

    Great idea! In such a case she will need David Hogg as a navigator. He will be monitoring the sailboat from the land, but he will bike to it every time it will get off it's course.

    Obama inspired half a generation of activists, i.e. shit-stirrers who contribute exactly nothing to human progress.

    Remind me in a few years when she is outed for nude pics. Pics of her mom to see what she will look like.

    The things people will say and do for their 15 minutes is not a surprise anymore.

    I find it pretty ironic that someone who has the time and bank account to take that amount of time off of work to sail around the world also wants to tell us how we should live our day to day lives struggling to put food on the table. Celebrities, politicians, and athletes are not my source of guidance on how to live my life.

    Science tells us that there have been at least five ice ages in the history of our planet. Perhaps this climate change is not something that we have anything to do with, much less control?

    Wonder if Greta insisted on subsisting on hardtack and coffee during her trip?

    The Manufacturing of Greta Thunberg – for Consent: The Political Economy of the Non-Profit Industrial Complex [ACT I]

    We Don’t Have Time identifies itself as a movement and tech startup that is currently developing “the world’s largest social network for climate action”. The “movement” component was launched on April 22, 2018. The web platform is still in the progress of being built, but is to launch on April 22, 2019 (coinciding with Earth Day). “Through our platform, millions of members will unite to put pressure on leaders, politicians and corporations to act for the climate.” The start-up’s goal to rapidly achieve 100 million users has thus far attracted 435 investors (74.52% of the company’s shares) via the web platform FundedByMe.

    We Don’t Have Time is mainly active in three markets: social media, digital advertising and carbon offsets. [“In the US alone estimated market for carbon offsetting amount to over 82 billion USD of which voluntary carbon offset represents 191 million USD. The market is expected to increase in the future, in 2019 estimated 15% of all greenhouse gas emissions to be associated with any kind of cost for offsetting.”] As the company is a niche organization, social networks are able to provide services tailored to platform users. The startup has identified such an opportunity by offering its users the ability to purchase carbon offsets through the platform’s own certification. This option applies to both the individual user of the platform, as well as whole organizations/companies on the platform.

    One incentive of many identified in the start-up investment section is that users will be encouraged to “communicate jointly and powerfully with influential actors.” Such influencers are Greta Thunberg and Jamie Margolin who both have lucrative futures in the branding of “sustainable” industries and products, if they wish to pursue this path in utilizing their present celebrity for personal gain (a hallmark of the “grassroots” NGO movement).

    An “emission-free world” sounds enticing – yet there are no plans whatsoever to retract our growth economies. “Environmentally sustainable solutions” … according to who? According to a tribal elder who upholds the principles of “the seventh generation” (the Indigenous belief that humans must properly provide for its descendants by ensuring that our actions in the present allow the Earthly survival of seven succeeding generations – not to be confused with Unilever’s Seventh Generation acquisition) – or according to the World Bank? (We all know the answer to this rhetorical question.)

    Another inconvenient truth, regarding the above premise, is that there is growing pressure on governments to increase Federal research and development funding to develop and deploy “deep decarbonisation” technologies as one of the primary “solutions” to climate change. This was proposed at the Paris Climate Accord with Bill Gates’ “Mission Innovation” initiative which committed to doubling government investment in energy technology.
