Greta Thunberg Arrives In New York After Two-Week Journey

Climate activist Greta Thunberg arrived in Manhattan on Wednesday after a two-week journey across the Atlantic Ocean in a zero-emissions yacht. She is in the United States to attend the U.N. Climate Action summit next month and hopes to attend the COP25 in Santiago, Chile, in December. Thunberg said she was going to focus on "spreading awareness" instead of trying to convince US President Donald Trump about climate change.
