This just happened! Greta Thunberg leader of a worldwide revolution for climate change

"The real power belongs to the people" has earned a nomination to the Nobel Peace Prize

Sharing is caring!

16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg explains why, in August 2018, she walked out of school and organized a strike to raise awareness of global warming, protesting outside the Swedish parliament and grabbing the world’s attention. “The climate crisis has already been solved. We already have all the facts and solutions,” Thunberg says. “All we have to do is to wake up and change.” In this article, you will find the very best of Greta Thunberg, the highlights of the School Strike for Climate in 15th March, and the last news on her recent nomination to the Nobel Prize. “We have come here to let you know that change is coming, whether you like it or not. The real power belongs to the people.”

You’d be thinking our media and every one of our leaders and politicians would be talking about climate change. But they don’t even mention it, it’s been ignored for a long time and it will continue. And this is the tipping point and pain of Greta Thunberg.

This is why the power has to go back to the people. “The power is the people” as the bow nominated Nobel prize Greta Thunberg says!

So how it all happened is that Greta Thunberg began a solo protest in Sweden in August by missing school every Friday and standing outside the Swedish parliament. More colleagues of her started to join until it grabbed the world’s attention. To the point that Thunberg has since inspired students around the globe.

“We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict and refugees. She has launched a mass movement which I see as a major contribution to peace.” Norwegian Socialist MP Freddy André Øvstegård

While some politicians have opposed the school strikes, many have supported them, including Germany’s Angela Merkel and Ireland’s Leo Varadkar. The mayors of Paris, Milan, Sydney, Austin, Philadelphia, Portland, Oslo, Barcelona and Montreal added their backing on Thursday.
