Greta Thunberg, the Swedish teenager who emerged in 2019 as an internationally-recognized voice for climate change activism, was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by two Swedish lawmakers.
Jens Holm and Hakan Svenneling, members of Sweden's Left Party, said the 17-year-old Thunberg "has worked hard to make politicians open their eyes to the climate crisis".
Greta Thunberg hasn't missed the boat on a Nobel Peace Prize.
It requires governments to present national plans to reduce emissions to limit the global temperature rise to well below 2 degrees Celsius.
Teenage climate activist Greta Thunberg propelled to global fame in 2018 after launching a school strike movement, first outside the Swedish parliament and then worldwide, encouraging fellow schoolkids to skip school and demand forceful climate action from their governments.
Her strike soon went viral, sparking hundreds of similar protests around the world that continue to draw millions of teens and adults in a campaign now called Fridays for Future.
Thunberg has become one of the world's most recognizable climate activists in the last few years, due to the passionate speeches she has given on the subject before the United Nations, the World Economic Forum in Davos, and other political bodies.
Thunberg was also nominated in 2019, but lost out previous year to Ethiopia's prime minister, Abiy Ahmed.
In 2019, she was among four people named as the winners of a Right Livelihood Award, also known as the Alternative Nobel, and was named Time magazine's Person of the Year.
This isn't the first time the American president has taken aim at the teenager: Upon her Time Person of the Year win last year, Trump tweeted, "So ridiculous", he wrote.
Nominations for the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize were due on February 1, the AP noted, but a victor will not be announced until this fall. The Nobel Committee itself, which is in Norway, did not publicly comment on Thunberg's nomination.
