Teen climate change celebrity Greta Thunberg was trying to make her way to Santiago, Chile for a climate conference set to take place in December. She was even loaned a Tesla to help her get there in green style. Unfortunately, protests in Chile led to the conference being suddenly moved across the pond to Madrid, Spain. This presented a problem for Thunberg who has made a point of refusing to fly because of the carbon footprint of passenger jets:
As #COP25 has officially been moved from Santiago to Madrid I’ll need some help.
It turns out I’ve traveled half around the world, the wrong way:)
Now I need to find a way to cross the Atlantic in November… If anyone could help me find transport I would be so grateful.

But earlier today Thunberg announced her problem had been solved. She’ll be sailing across the Atlantic with a couple who make their living as lifestyle bloggers.
