- Greta Thunberg has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize the second time
- Thunberg, who is 17-years-old, was nominated because of her climate's activism
- Recall that the 17-year-old teenager was nominated in 2019, but did not win the honour
Seventeen-year-old teen climate activist Greta Thunberg has yet again been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
Thunberg's climate activism was responsible for her nomination, two lawmakers from Sweden, Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, said.
Recall that Thunberg was first nominated for the honour in 2019 by a group of Norwegian parliament members, but it went to Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.
The Hill reports that the lawmakers said Thunberg has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis.
Legit.ng notes that the lawmakers said: "Action for reducing our emissions and complying with the Paris Agreement is therefore also an act of making peace."
Reacting on Facebook, Teresa Billig said: "I'm delighted to learn that good stewardship, as well as concern for the planet and future generations, has been in Greta's family for generations."
Mike King said: "Funny fact, it would be the second Nobel in the Family, her maternal side got a Nobel in Chemistry. He also coined the phrase "global warming". And did studies on the greenhouse effect."
Shannon Banfield said: "What about all the other people who are doing the exact same thing and have been doing it since before this girl was even born?"
Antonio Lobo said: "The Nobel Prize is losing credibility if someone that passed so little time fighting for a cause can win it. You know, before people had to pass a lifetime researching or doing good things to receive one of those. She comes out of nowhere last year, very young and now this. Looks like to get one of those you just need to know the right people."
Giulio Castagna said: "I am not interested in prizes for the important work of Greta, but much more to states initiatives to stop pollution and climate change."
Christian Chopin said: "It completely discredits the Nobel prize. The people behind this little girl are shameful. Environmental protection and global warming are serious matters requiring serious decisions and serious workable policies not screaming from an adolescent pushed by her parents and other bright stars!"
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a total number of 400 new species were discovered in 2019 by experts at the Natural History Museum, including a beetle that was named after teen climate activist, Greta Thunberg.
The naming of the species was done by a London-based museum. Among the list are 171 beetles.
There were also newfound lichens, marsupials, snakes and long-extinct dinosaurs, as scientists warned that the species were being lost before they were even discovered.
It should be noted that the museum’s scientists are one of the biggest groups in the world. A museum doctor of science, Tim Littlewood, spoke about how species discovery is always exciting.
In other news, sometimes, this life is full of unexplainable events called mysteries. A picture taken 121 years ago in 1898 shows that popular teen climate activist, Greta Thunberg, 'may' have lived before this present time.
In the picture, there are three children working with a machine in a goldmine during the 1989 Klondike Gold Rush.
The picture which was shot by Eric Hegg is presently archived in the University of Washington’s Special Collection archive.
