"You can do it!" tweet millions of Greta's fans. #wethink? #soundskindanuts!

Somewhere in Northern Mexico - After sailing to New York City in August, Swedish climate activist, Greta Thunberg, has been slowly making her way to Chilé for more climate talks, by pumping an old-fashioned railroad handcar across North America. With the help of three Hungarian weightlifters, she still refuses to use fossil fuels on her long trip.

But now, somewhere in Durango, Mexico, the 16-year-old, global-warming sensation has found out that Chilé will not be holding the environmental summit after all, which has been officially switched to Madrid, Spain.

"Take the next left!" Greta demanded of her Hungarian pumpers, after hearing the news, and sending out a frantic tweet storm. "There has been a change of plans...Stupid Chilé," she said sternly, intently staring out across the barren desert.

Unable to readily secure another sailboat from her Twitter universe, now Greta plans to detour the railroad pump-car to Cancun, Mexico, where she and her burly helpers will peddle a 4-seater swan-boat out of the Gulf of Mexico and across the Atlantic Ocean to Spain. "It's the best offer I've had so far," said the slightly dejected teen, staring at her phone. "It's very nice of the Azul Fiesta Hotel to lend us one of their swan boats, I think. Besides, we've been having such a long, tiring workout with our arms on this pump-car, that this will be a good chance to give our legs more of a workout."

Renewed by a sense of urgency, young miss Thunberg thinks that it will take another week or so to reach Cancun, and probably at least a month to forty days for the swan boat crossing. "Hopefully the winds are in our favour, and I will make it to the conference in December on time," she said, demanding Igor to pump faster. "I cannot rest until there is a solar panel and a wind turbine on top of every house in the world!", but added, "I do need to pee really bad if you see a nice clump of bushes anywhere, Igor."

Note: Ms. Thunberg now also hopes to bring attention to the recent trend of rich people serving swan instead of turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.
