Tory MP David Davies labels The 1975 'hypocritical' over climate change

Greta Thunberg Joins Climate Protest Outside UN in New York

"We welcome Ms. Thunberg and wish her a pleasant stay after a long journey across the seas", Stephane Dujarric, Spokesperson for the Secretary-General, told reporters in NY.

She arrived in NY two days ago via zero-emission sailing yacht to build this momentum ahead of September 20th student climate strike and a United Nations speech on the 23rd.

Sharing the statement on Twitter, Davies wrote: "I've been listening to the climate change essay recorded by Swedish activist Greta Thunberg for your new album".

"It is insane that a 16-year-old would have to cross the Atlantic Ocean to make a stand", she said.

She's in NY to speak at the United Nations Climate Action Summit next month. Her weekly climate strike campaign, known as Fridays for Future, spread around the world via social media.

The 16-year-old completed a 15-day journey across the Atlantic shortly after 4:00pm (20:00 GMT), stepping off the boat onto a Manhattan dock to cheering crowds chanting her name.

Record Audiences Get Set to Make the 2017 Grand National the Biggest To Date
For some , it will be a case of asking which horses have been at their most impressive this season that will give them the clues as to which Grand National horses to bet on .

U.N. Secretary-Basic Antonio Guterres has warned that the world faces a local weather emergency and challenged leaders to come back to the 193-member United Nations subsequent month with concrete, life like plans on the way to higher deal with the emergency. The teenage activist has said she does not yet know how she will return to Europe.

The Malizia II wasn't built for trans-Atlantic trips. Taking turns steering the 60-foot (18-meter) racing yacht were two skippers Boris Herrmann and Pierre Casiraghi, the grandson of Monaco's late Prince Rainier III and American actress Grace Kelly.

Thunberg will communicate at a September 23 local weather summit through the annual gathering of world leaders for the U.N. Basic Meeting. In addition to there being several people to cheer her arrival, her boat was accompanied into NY by a flotilla of 17 sailboats that were organized by the United Nations.

She continued her school strike on Fridays after the election, spurring thousands of young people to follow suit.

It's been a little over a year since Thunberg shot to worldwide fame, when she started skipping school so she could protest outside the Swedish parliament for the need for stricter measures to fight climate change. "And he obviously doesn't do that". They held placards that said "Climate change is in crisis situation".

But first, she said, she planned to: "Eat fresh food, not freeze dried, not be wet and to clean myself".
