The 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg set sail for New York on Aug. 14, across the Atlantic in a racing yacht, to join protests in the United States and take part in a United Nations summit in September. She has stopped flying as the aviation industry is responsible for 12% of CO2 emissions from all forms of transports.
