On Wednesday, the 16-year-old Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize. She was nominated for her impressive work on global warming.
Norwegian lawmaker Freddy André Øvstegård told Norwegian news outlet VG, “We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict and refugees. Greta Thunberg has launched a mass movement which I see as a major contribution to peace.”
Honoured and very grateful for this nomination ❤️ https://t.co/axO4CAFXcz
