A solution for Greta's conundrum
GretaThunberg has found herself stranded in the Americas now that the annual climate change jamboree (COP25) has been cancelled in Chile and is to be held in Madrid instead. Since she will not fly, there’s a little bit of a problem for her getting to the conference. She’s appealing for help to get back across the Atlantic. My suggestion would be to appeal directly to Vlad Putin for help to cross the Bering Strait by boat. It’s only 85km wide, although this is a bad time of the year to cross. The problem with this suggestion is that Vlad has already joined the chorus of elderly male politicians wondering aloud who the hell this schoolgirl thinks she is, telling them about their wayward fossil fuel ways. But if Vlad were to offer assistance, what a coup! Given his and Trump’s love-in, they could engineer a travel solution immediately. But both of them hate the idea that a schoolgirl can upstage them. I have to say if I were wearing their cynical shoes, I’d sort it immediately. It would cost them nothing and make them look partly human.
