Yeah right. He'd have more luck with a big rubber band stretched between the tail and a propeller on the nose...

A spokesman for former California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has confirmed that the iconic Hollywood action star has arranged a Tesla Model 3 for climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who is scheduled to participate in several key protests around the United States and Canada this month.

In a statement to motoring publication Car and Driver, Schwarzenegger’s spokesman explained that the former governor had previously asked the young, fiery activist to give him a call “if she needed anything.” And with Thunberg needing help arranging her transportation around North America, Schwarzenegger volunteered his help. Thanks to the former governor’s small assistance, “Greta can travel fully electric through the United States and Canada,” the spokesman added.

When initial reports of the Hollywood legend arranging the transportation needs of Thunberg emerged, social media users were speculating which of Schwarzenegger’s electric vehicles he would lend to the activist. Some speculated that the former governor might even lend his personal favorite EV, a fully-electric Hummer. According to Schwarzenegger’s spokesman, “getting (Arnold’s) electric Hummer across the country would be quite a challenge so it isn’t his personal car.” Thus, the choice was made and the governor opted to set up the activist with a Tesla Model 3 instead.

While a friendship between Arnold Schwarzenegger and Greta Thunberg might seem quite random, the two are actually both powerful voices in the climate debate. The two had met previously earlier this year in Vienna, with the former governor stating that he was “starstruck” by the young activist, whose bold, no-frills approach in calling for climate action has made her a powerful force in the environmental scene.

----------------------------

Thunberg has since headed to several rallies since, including one in Montreal, Canada, where around 500,000 people attended a climate strike, so it appears that she is already using the Tesla Model 3 that the former governor had arranged for her. The massive demonstration was held simultaneously with similar strikes across the globe, with the total number of activists reaching several millions worldwide.

I presume she has a driver's license. That would be odd, given the minimum driving age in Sweden is 18.

Some people are just too stupid for words...


Arnold Schwarzenegger and teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg may be unlikely buddies, but if you look at them simply as a pair of Europeans who share a strong interest in climate change, it starts to make sense. In fact, the actor confessed he was "starstruck" at meeting Thunberg in May. Now he has arranged for the 16-year-old to have an electric car to ferry her to various protest events around the U.S. and Canada this month.

Many US States are giving driver’s licenses to illegal aliens now. Why would they have any issue with a legal alien driving?
I suspect she's here on a visa waiver not any kind of green card or other visa. Therefore she's entitled to drive on her foreign drivers license for 90 days. IF she has one, which she doesn't. And learner permits don't count.

Well. Either way I'm sure it's good PR for Tesla.

Now. If Exxon Mobil want to lend me a Maybach S65...
