Here’s a post from another forum concerning their conditions and route.

I just checked the weather. They certainly look to be in the perfect spot on the navigatable quadrant of the low.
GFS is showing a nice avenue to remain in.
It might be bumpy out there from waves coming from all directions but it doesn't look too bad for them.
Fingers crossed it remainsike this.

Its young people like Greta who are going to be most affected by climate change as the world's climate goes to hell. Its only right that she and other young people get to have a say about their own futures.

Greta Thunberg at the UN COP24 meeting in 2017 in Poland where nothing was done about climate change. Now she is traveling to the 2019 UN COP25 meeting in Madrid where once again nothing will be done about climate change.

These meetings are not meant to do anything about climate change.
They are designed for important people to meet each other, have some chats, attend some big dinner parties, stay in expensive hotels, screw beautiful and often underage prostitutes (all on tax payer expense) and then fly back home.
Anyway they know that nothing can be timely done and nothing will be done for social, political, logistical and countless other reasons, they are advised that whatever could be tried would prove to be futile, so why to even bother?

.
those meetings are above all to create political credentials to promote some rise in the power ladder
the bit about networking with others and having a junket is also true
bonking underage prostitutes is way too risky for a smart operators ,too much chance of being blackmailed after
any competent politician would have learned this lesson by now
this is not the good old days anymore , the underage prostitute is on the podium

Significant proportion of politicians (including Bill Clinton between many other) seems to be incompetent.
But doesn't matter.
They know that good old days are threatened, so (unlike in the case of climate change) they are actually doing something about it.
Intensive promotion of sex education and all sort of sexual degeneracies and perversions in public schools in US and elsewhere is meant to sexualize children and push down statutory consent age.
Within few years they will normalize paedophilia and ephebophilia, lower statutory minimal consent age to 10-12 and everything will be fine again.
Then all paedophiles and other psychopaths from western governments will be safe (and kids will get plenty of tips and sweets as well, so everyone will be happy).
Once people got used to it they will lower consent age again, this time down to 6-7.

Greta Thunberg

Unread postby Revi » Wed 20 Nov 2019, 12:07:35

She's on her way back to Madrid in a Catamaran, and she has about 2000 miles to go. At an average speed of 7 knots she can make it to the opening on Dec. 7th. COP 25 had to be moved from Chile due to unrest. It's interesting to see the wackos go nuts over what she's saying. Meanwhile the US has fallen back to sleep, since she's headed back.

"Greta cannot compete with Trump when it comes to entertainment obsessed Americans." Ibon

I agree! The only time she got any significant air time was when she was asked about Trump.

He gets all the press, all the time.

Greta Thunberg revealed to be time traveler sent back through time to save us from climate change

Old-photo-girl-1898-sparks-claims-Greta-Thunberg-time-traveller-sent-save-us

If Greta Thunberg is a time traveller sent back in time to save us, then it would explain how she is so confident about her dire predictions for climate change. Being from the future she would know.

And it would explain why Greta is so consistently focussed on the governments and the UN and their failure to deal with climate change. Being from the future the would know what has to be done to set things right.

And it it would explain why Greta doesn't seem at all like a normal teenage girl, but instead like someone on a mission. Being from the future and sent back in time to save us means she actually IS on a mission.

Articles like that are a sign that maybe Greta's 15 minutes are over--or that her value has only ever been as tabloid fodder.

BOLD PREDICTIONS
-Billions are on the verge of starvation as the lockdown continues. (yoshua, 5/20/20)

HALL OF SHAME:
-Short welched on a bet and should be shunned.
-Frequent-flyers should not cry crocodile-tears over climate-change.

Unfortunately I agree. She will join the other climate prophets such as Al Gore, Bill McKibben and Kevin Anderson who are hardly listened to any more. They all got some fame and got their message out. Did anyone listen?

We know from the Peak Oil movement that you can be right, but people don't want to listen.

I think she's going to make it barring unforeseen circumstances. At 7 knots she should be there for the opening in Madrid. They are going 8.3 knots right now!

It looks like a nice broad reach followed by a run downwind for a while. They should move along nicely!

The focus of the upcoming COP25 meeting in Madrid will be the oceans. Countries will be asked to make non-binding voluntary pledges of things they might do to help the oceans cope with global warming.

cop25-to-keep-ocean-focus-despite-moving-to-madrid

Its funny how the UN negotiates all kinds of international treaties to solve the world's problems, but when it comes to climate change the rules change and the treaties aren't treaties but "accords" and the agreements aren't binding but instead are voluntary.

No wonder Greta is doing her best to get to Madrid so she can give the UN hell about their failure to act. We've already seen the voluntary Kyoto Accords do nothing about rising CO2 emissions, and now the voluntary Paris Accords are failing the same way. What is the point in countries making voluntary pledges about the oceans if they don't have to keep them?

We've got a problem with global warming. The UN needs to step up and go back to the original plan of negotiating binding TREATIES to reduce greenhouse gas emissions on a global basis. They are wasting precious time on this idiotic pipe dream that countries will voluntarily follow through on their pledges to reduce their CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions because it ain't happening. Even the pledges ain't happening....when you tallied up all the pledges at Paris they actually amounted to a promise to INCREASE global greenhouse gases emissions...and thats exactly what has happened.

What could be more wrong then a climate accord that actually calls for INCREASES IN GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSIONS!!?!?!?!!? SHEEESH!!!!!!!

Give 'em hell at the COP25 in Madrid, Greta. They richly deserve it.

Look out Madrid....here she comes!

OH-oh. Rare late season Hurricane forming now in Atlantic. Its projected path will take it northeast towards Greta Thunberg and the brave little sailing ship the Minnow La Vagabonde.

Really? Are you rooting for the bush fires as well? I really don't like their course. They could have some 50 knot winds! I don't know about being on a cat in those kinds of winds. I'd rather have a deep keel underneath me! I guess a cat can do okay in rough seas if it's properly handled:

quite a few of our bush fires were started by people ,
as for the Swedish poster child ,she is prisoner and hostage of her image
I totally dislike using children as propaganda , it smack of emotional blackmail


and Yes cats are tricky to ride in a storm , they will have to run with it keeping just enough speed to crest the waves at an angle
not having a keel make it horrendous if the wind is shifting fast
