Activist Greta Thunberg urges Standing Rock youth to demand climate change action

It may seem like a coincidence, but some credit climate change.

Political leaders around the globe have celebrated the 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg - but can they handle her as she and her supporters turn more radical?

"In August this past year, she started sitting in front of Sweden's parliament on Fridays using a sign reading" School Attack to the Climate".

Thunberg traveled to the U.S.in August on a sailboat to promote her climate change campaign. A few days later, at the Climate Change summit, she condemned world leaders for their lack of action in halting climate change. He also said her tender age could make the prize more of a burden than a reward.

If she succeeds, the Swede will become its youngest ever recipient - a year younger than Pakistan's Malala Yousafzai was when she shared the award in 2014.

Norwegian historian Asle Sveen echoed that view.

"Remember the real fact that she is now a world star, in war with Donald Trump, and he or she place apart the searchlight on climate substitute larger than someone else", he said.

"This wh**e! A 16-year-old can take a pounding, she's at the right age", he wrote on Facebook.

"I judge that climate substitute is a mission which is strongly associated to safety and peace".

According to London-based online betting company Betfair, Abiy Ahmed, the Ethiopian Prime Minister who brought an end to his country's conflict with Eritrea, is the second most likely candidate to win.

"Abiy Ahmed would be a correct candidate, as his tenure has had peace-inducing ends within the country and on the place", said Peter Wallensteen, professor of Peace and Battle Learn at Sweden's Uppsala College.

Predicting the victor is a challenge because the Norwegian Nobel Committee never shows the names of their nominees. All that's identified is that a total of 301 folks and organisations had been nominated this 365 days.

Experts also suggest that the five-person committee could this year decide to focus on freedom of expression and information, at a time when such freedoms are under pressure in both democracies and authoritarian regimes.

"At the time of bogus news and information overload... and also the absence of transparency, the absence of responsibility in several political procedures, this can be something which I'd hope the committee could take quite seriously and think about", Urdal explained.

Press organisations corresponding to Reporters With out Borders (RSF) or the Committee to Shield Journalists (CPJ) might then be potential winners.

Since the migration catastrophe continues to dominate the political agenda, the United Nations refugee agency UNHCR and its mind Filippo Grandi, in addition to the organization SOS Mediterranee, will also be regarded as potential winners.

Broadly thought of a controversial lengthy shot, US President Donald Trump has nonetheless been talked about for his efforts to fix previous wounds with North Korean chief Kim Jong Un.

The victor will be announced live from Oslo, Norway, at 11 am local time (8pm Sydney time) on Friday. Catch all of the Stay TV motion on HEARALPUBLICIST 24×7 and HEARALPUBLICIST India.
