  • Le voyage de Greta Thunberg en bateau est-il vraiment plus polluant que si elle avait pris l'avion

La détermination de l'adolescente suédoise Greta Thunberg à aller interpeller les grands de ce monde sur leur action pour le climat aux quatre coins de la planète vire au casse-tête carbonique.

Greta Thunberg, jeune égérie de la lutte contre le réchauffement climatique, a mis le cap sur New York mercredi dernier à bord d'un voilier de course zéro carbone, skippé par un membre de la famille princière monégasque, Pierre Casiraghi - qui a mis gratuitement à sa disposition le bateau - et l'Allemand Boris Herrmann. Une traversée de deux semaines qui doit lui permettre d'assister au sommet mondial de l'ONU, prévu en septembre dans la mégalopole américaine. Jeudi, Die Tageszeitung (en allemand) a titré sur "la croisière de Greta plus polluante que l'avion", après avoir découvert la pollution liée au rapatriement du bateau.

D'après le journal allemand Die Tageszeintung, Andreas Kling, de passage à Pékin, a affirmé que cinq personnes rejoindraient les Etats-Unis en avion afin de convoyer le voilier à son port une fois le périple de Greta Thunberg terminé. Selon The Times (en anglais, article abonnés), ils seront deux à s'y rendre par les airs.

10,000 homeless after fire sweeps through Bangladesh slum
Fires in Bangladeshi slums where hundreds of thousands of people are crammed in shacks along rail and waterways s are common. In 2012, a fire swept through a nine-storey garment factory near Dhaka killing 111 workers.

" Nous avons planifié ce voyage à New York à la dernière minute, et en conséquence, deux personnes devront se rendre en avion à New York pour ramener le bateau", a confirmé auprès de l'AFP Holly Cova, responsable de l'équipe Malizia, dans une déclaration transmise par l'entourage de Greta Thunberg.

Comme son père Stefano Casiraghi, Pierre Casiraghi a la passion de la mer. Résultat: l'empreinte écologique de son déplacement à New-York sera bien plus importante que si elle s'était résigné à prendre un Stockholm/ New-York accompagné de son père. Un autre équipage ramènera le bateau, mais deux des marins sont déjà aux États-Unis. Jusqu'à preuve du contraire, l'opération n'est donc pas pertinente d'un strict point de vue comptable. Seulement voilà, elle avait oublié de préciser que l'organisation de sa traversée de l'Atlantique en bateau à bord d'un voiler en carbonne nécéssiterait six vols. en avions.

Bien sûr, il aurait été plus écologique de ne pas attirer l'attention sur le fait que nous devons agir de toute urgence contre la crise climatique.

La volonté de la militante Greta Thunberg de générer le moins possible de CO2 rencontre quelques écueils. Une traversée à bord d'un cargo serait à l'étude.
