Climate Activist Greta Thunberg has set sail on a two-week journey by boat across the Atlantic ocean.
“I thought it would be the best way to avoid my parents when my exam results come through”, explained climate awareness hero Greta, “After addressing most of the European Parliaments, organising school children to boycott Fridays and addressing various climate summits. My revision schedule was seriously effected. I’m not expecting very good grades”
The GCSE grading system in England has changed to a 9-1 system (9 Being The highest)
“Well in Sweden GCSEs are slightly different where we still have the Ö-Level system with traditional Å-Ë grades.”, explained Greta, “So before I started to save the planet, I was expecting an Å for Maths, Å for Swedish, Å for English…”, Greta then went onto list a further 47 subjects she was expecting to get top grades in, “But after all this campaigning, I think my parents may have to readjust their expectations. I suspect a few grade ßs at least”
The 16-year-old left from Plymouth on the Malizia II, a solar-powered racing yacht with underwater turbines, on Wednesday.
“The only subject I will be expecting a top grade in now is Environmental and Land Based Science”, a sad Greta lamented, “But then, I did write most of the syllabus.”
Speaking on the quayside in Plymouth, Greta said the message was getting across, slowly.
“Which is exactly, what I’ll be doing across the Atlantic”, chuckled Greta.
Seriously, safe journey Greta you’re an inspiration.
