Ilhan Omar's Daughter Leading Climate Change School Walkouts in U.S.

Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg attends a protest rally in Hamburg Germany Friday

Greta Thunberg, Davos: 'Adults keep saying: 'We owe it to the young people to give them hope.' But I don't want your hope.

"We have nominated Greta because the climate threat may be one of the most important causes of war and conflict", parliamentary representative Freddy Andre Oevstegaard told Norwegian media outlet VG.

Thanks to her efforts, students across 40 countries will march out of classrooms on March 15 to take part in the "school strikes" against climate change inaction. But she also said it was important to start taking action on climate change as soon as possible. One of the leaders the young girl mentioned in a message to digital video publisher Brut India was Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Hirsi, who lists on Twitter page that she is the head of the Minnesota High School Democrats and several other left-wing youth-based organizations, said in a recent interview with Grist that she is looking to "change the conversation" on issues such as the Green New Deal by organizing the strike.

Young people are expected to take to the streets in cities across Europe, Australia, Asia, Africa and the United States on Friday. We'll be walking from the University of Malta to the Parliament building in Valletta, to raise awareness on our future and our planet!

Thunberg had said: "You only speak of green eternal economic growth because you are too scared of being unpopular".

National politicians and some university professors can nominate candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize.

For proof, just look at 16-year-old climate change activist Greta Thunberg.

The Norwegian Nobel Committee doesn't publicly comment on nominations, which for 2019 had to be submitted by February 1.

If Greta wins the prize, she will be the youngest person to ever become a Nobel laureate. "With our futures at stake, we call for radical legislative action to combat climate change and its countless detrimental effects on the American people".

Now three MPs from Norway have put her forward for the prestigious prize, which was founded by Swedish industrialist Alfred Nobel.

The Nobel Peace Prize previous year went to Congo's Denis Mukwege and Iraq's Nadia Murad for "their efforts to end the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war and armed conflict".
