Students in NJ will be striking on Friday for 'Green New Deal'

Students in NJ will be striking on Friday for 'Green New Deal'”

"We have proposed Greta Thunberg because if we do nothing to halt climate change it will be the cause of wars, conflict, and refugees", Norwegian politician Freddy André Øvstegård told global news agency AFP.

Freddy Andre Oevstegaard and two other members of the Socialist Left Party said they believe "the massive movement Greta has set in motion is a very important peace contribution".

Greta Thunberg, a 16-year-old Swedish activist who is a prominent voice in the fight against climate change, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize this year.

A demand that our USA legislators implement the Green New Deal and other legislative actions to decrease the climate crisis. "Everyone should be scared", she said.

Because of her efforts to combat climate change and save the planet - and inspire young people around the world to do the same - the Swedish teen has been nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize by three Norwegian lawmakers.

Asked whether she feels optimistic about the potential of Friday's protest, Gillibrand replied: "I wouldn't say optimistic is quite the right word. The strikes so far have students in a hundred countries confirmed participating around the globe", Carla Galea, the KSU President, said today.

The March 15 protest isn't the first of its kind.

Some friends are "not into it at all", she suspects because they do not want to go out in the cold - the forecast is for hail on Friday. "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".

Ever since Thunberg began her protest in August 2018, students in the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Australia, Ireland, Poland, Thailand, Colombia, and Uganda have staged similar school walkout protests to pressure government officials to look into climate change.

Malala Yousafzai now holds the record for youngest Nobel laureate after she won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2014 at the age of 17.

"We are striking because we have done our homework and they have not".

I hope that you will be awarded the Nobel Prize for Peace.
