    Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old Swedish activist who has made headlines for galvanizing a global youth climate movement, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.

    On Thursday, three members of the Socialist Left Party in Norway announced they were nominating Thunberg for the honor. “If we do nothing to halt climate change, it will be the cause of wars, conflict and refugees,” Freddy Andre Ovstegard, one of the lawmakers who nominated Thunberg, told Agence France-Presse. “Greta Thunberg has launched a mass movement which I see as a major contribution to peace.”

    Thunberg has publicly responded to the nomination on Twitter, writing, “Honored and very grateful for this nomination.”
