“SHOULD YOU FLY, DRIVE OR TAKE THE TRAIN IF YOU CARE ABOUT THE PLANET?”
Spain’s environment minister promised that the government would help the climate campaigner Greta Thunberg cross the Atlantic in time to attend the upcoming UN climate talks in Madrid after a last minute change in venue left the 16-year-old stranded on the wrong side of the world.
“Dear Greta, it would be great to have you here in Madrid,” the minister, Teresa Ribera, said on Twitter. “You’ve made a long journey and help all of us to raise concern, open minds and enhance action. We would love to help you to cross the Atlantic back.”
The 16-year-old, who refuses to fly because of the carbon emissions involved and had already made it halfway from Sweden to Chile for the summit by boat, train and electric car when the new venue was announced, turned to social media to ask for a lift to Madrid.
