Vegan climate activist Greta Thunberg will use Arnold Schwarzenegger’s electric vehicle to travel to Canada for the next leg of the ongoing climate protests. On a recent episode of Scandinavian talk show Skavlan, Thunberg described one of the best messages of support she has received thus far, stating, “… One of the funniest offers I have received is that Arnold Schwarzenegger has offered me to lend his electric car if I wanted to.” According to Skavlan, Thunberg and her father—who traveled to New York from her native Sweden by sailboat earlier this month—took Schwarzenegger up on his offer and will arrive, by way of the The Terminator’s car, in Montreal in time for tomorrow’s climate protest.
On Monday, Thunberg delivered a moving speech in New York at the Climate Action Summit and announced that she and 15 other children are suing five top polluting countries to encourage intergovernmental cooperation on climate-crisis solutions. While Schwarzenegger is not vegan, the former California governor recently helped produce vegan documentary The Game Changers and has used his celebrity platform to urge fans to eat less animal products.
