Climate activist Greta Thunberg nears Lisbon port

Greta Thunberg sails in for climate summit

The Climate Change Activist, Greta Thunberg, is expected to arrive in Lisbon on Tuesday and plans to take part in a demonstration in Madrid on Friday, December 6.

The boat, La Vagabonde, carried the Swedish campaigner, who refuses to travel by plane, across the Atlantic so she could attend the COP25 climate summit in Madrid.

She's also due to address delegates from 200 countries at the Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, or COP25, which was moved to Madrid because of the political unrest in Chile.

"It turns out I've travelled half around the world, the wrong way".

Thunberg set sail from NY after touring North America, raising awareness about climate change.

She sounded a rallying cry to fellow youth climate activists as she made landfall in Lisbon, promising to ensure that young people have a seat at the table at the upcoming climate summit in Madrid.

The yacht leaves little or no carbon footprint when its sails are up, using solar panels and hydro-generators for electricity.

"Estimated time of arrival right now is Tuesday morning [local time]". We are all looking forward to see you there!'

We are SO greatly blessed to have you as our warrior angel of climate change, devoting all your time at this time and your life to fighting so hard!

Ms Thunberg was speaking after her arrival in Lisbon, Portugal, after a two-weeks-plus journey across the Atlantic from her starting point in Virginia, US. Reports released during the talks will reveal how hot the world has been in 2019, and the amount of carbon pollution.

"We need to work together to make sure that we secure future living conditions for humankind and that we fight for not only ourselves but for our children and for our grandchildren and for every single living being on earth", the teenage activist told reporters.

This year's conference aims to reach an agreement on some of the rules to implement the Paris Agreement.

The U.N. weather agency says that the current decade is likely to set a new 10-year temperature record, adding further evidence that the world is getting hotter.
