OSLO (AFP): Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish schoolgirl climate campaigner who has inspired worldwide protests, should be awarded this year's Nobel Peace price, Norwegian lawmakers said Thursday (March 14).

"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 Socialist MP Freddy Andre Ovstegard told AFP.
