When she came over to the United Nations in New York, teen global warming sensation Greta Thunberg took a carbon-neutral boat because she has issues flying due to the pollution.

The long voyage got plenty of coverage, but there was one issue: Thanks to the fact that it was arranged on short notice, a crew had to be flown across the ocean in order to get the ship back.
