Greta Thunberg poses for a photograph.
Swedish activist Greta Thunberg said Monday she has returned to school after a year off campaigning to curb climate change.
"My gap year from school is over, and it feels so great to finally be back in school again!" the 17-year-old tweeted, attaching a smiling photo of herself with a schoolbag on her back and her hands resting on a bicycle.
Thunberg did not say in which city or school she would be continuing her studies.
Since her last school year finished in June 2019, the teenager's travels around the world meant that she ended up doing lessons remotely.
Rather than head into the final years of secondary school, she travelled across the Atlantic by sailing boat -- hoping to highlight the carbon emissions of flying.
Her ultimate destination had been the COP25 UN climate conference in Chilean capital Santiago.
But the event was ultimately shifted to Madrid because of massive unrest in Chile, leaving Thunberg to sail back from the US to Europe on board a catamaran belonging to a young Australian couple.
While in North America, Thunberg rebuked world leaders at the UN, had a repeat visit with former US President Barack Obama, was given the keys to the city of Montreal and travelled around the continent in a Tesla electric car lent by former California governor and action star Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Researchers from Cambridge University, the University of East Anglia and London-based SOAS looked at a "realistic scenario" known as RCP 8.5, where carbon and other polluting emissions continue rising in coming decades.
Crumbling glaciers and torrents of melt-water slicing through Greenland's ice block — as thick as ten Eiffel Towers end-to-end — were the single biggest source of global sea level rise in 2019 and accounted for 40 per cent of the total, researchers reported in the journal Communications Earth & Environment.
Greta Thunberg has said that the world needs to learn the lessons of coronavirus and treat climate change with similar urgency.
Renewed allegations of racism at Buckingham Palace threatened to overshadow Prince William’s trip to the United States after campaigners said the palace needed to acknowledge a wider problem that goes beyond one member of staff.
