Teenage climate activist nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

After Friday, some students plan to continue skipping school on Fridays until political leaders take action. Since they take less planning, it is generally up to the students in the area to show up and strike in front of their city halls or other government buildings.

World leaders may listen to the school pupils taking part in one of the largest global climate change protests ever, but the key test is whether they take action, said the 13-year-old. "They are arguing about things like Brexit but we need them to act now on climate change. because in 12 years we can't turn anything back".

"We need to take more action on climate change now and a lot of that action is not going to come from trying to use the train rather than driving your vehicle". We will not accept a life in fear and devastation. "We have the right to clean air, clean water, clean land".

The group is also demanding the creation of a committee-with subpoena power-to "oversee implementation of the Green New Deal", and the declaration of a National Emergency on Climate Change.

The 16-year-old, now with a global following, has been crusading so far on just a bicycle and with a hand-painted placard reading: "School strike for climate".

I hope that you will be awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace. "I feel it is so imperative we protect it".

James Taylor, senior fellow for environment and climate policy at the free-market Heartland Institute, called it ironic that climate activists would encourage students to prioritize the protest over classroom time.
