Climate change activitst Greta Thunberg in Los Ángeles

The teenager said she felt "energised" after the trip and would spend a few days in Lisbon before attending the Madrid summit, which runs until 13 December.

"At the negotiators level, they are working to try and close any loopholes to make sure that you have a strong agreement that works", said Stephen Cornelius, chief adviser on climate change at the World Wildlife Fund UK.

"Many people say that nothing will come out of the COP25".

"People are underestimating the force of angry kids", the 16-year-old Swedish activist told crowds in Lisbon, Portugal.

Thunberg wanted a low-carbon form of transport to get to the climate meeting, which was switched at short notice to Spain from Chile due to unrest there.

The journey was meant to save approximately two or three tons of carbon dioxide emissions but the skipper's flight out has produced the same emissions the journey hoped to save countering Ms Thunberg's mission, The Times reports.

After using her appearance in NY to denounce governments for failing to act with sufficient urgency on the environment, Ms Thunberg attended weekly green protests in several USA cities before embarking on her long trip back to Europe.

Others dressed in red robes with their faces whitened to symbolize the human species' peril danced briefly before police moved in to end the protest.

Underscoring the pace of change, the Geneva-based World Meteorological Organization (WMO) launched a report at the talks that found the past decade was nearly certain to have been the hottest on record.

Preliminary temperature measurements show that the years from 2015 to 2019 and from 2010 to 2019 "are, respectively, nearly certain to be the warmest five-year period and decade on record", the World Meteorological Organisation said.

While full-year temperature measurements won't be available for several more months, the agency also said that 2019 is expected to be the second or third warmest year on record.
