Greta Thunberg joins climate protest outside United Nations HQ

Greta Thunberg joins climate protest outside United Nations HQ”

"So we can communicate [to] you the science". And they chanted "System change, not climate change" and "Don't just watch us, join us", the Guardian of London reported.

Thunberg arrived in NY on Wednesday in advance of her September 23 speech to the coming United Nations climate summit - after a two-week voyage aboard a yacht supplied by the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. Other students worldwide joined her in organizing a school climate strike movement under the name Fridays for Future.

Sabag said she wanted to help save the planet by trying "to not use much carbon dioxide or fossil fuels or like plastics and stuff".

The youthful activists, with a sprinkling of older ones, gathered Friday morning opposite the United Nations building in NY under a peace obelisk in Ralph Bunche Park.

Her idea for a carbon-free trans-Atlantic trip has generated controversy after news broke that the sailing team that brought her to the US will be flying back, as will several others who are flying from Europe to take the boat back across the Atlantic.

"The most important thing you can do now as an individual is to try to read all these things that no one wants to read", Thunberg said. "The climate and ecological crisis is a global crisis, the biggest crisis that humanity has ever faced, and if we don't manage to work together and to cooperate and to work together despite our differences, then we will fail".

"We absolutely need to keep the rise of temperature to 1.5 degrees Celsius to the end of the century, and to be carbon neutral in 2050, and to have a 45 percent reduction of emissions by 2030", he told reporters in France on Monday. She'll join world leaders who will present plans to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The Guardian spoke to an American teen activist at the protest Friday, Dana Henao, 16, of Brentwood, New York.

Another added: "Honestly and I say this for your own good, get a life". "I don't see myself as a leader, or icon, or the face of a movement".

Young climate justice activists don't have time for skeptics.

"The world is literally melting right in front of our eyes and no-one even realizes it", she said.
