Greta Thunberg refuses to accept environmental award

@GretaThunberg
Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg has refused to accept an environmental award. In an Instagram post from the United States, she said, the climate movement needed people in power to start to listen to science and not awards. Thanking the Nordic Council for the honour, but  also criticised Nordic countries for not living up to their great reputation on climate issues.

The young climate activist, who has rallied millions to her Fridays for Future movement, was honoured at a Stockholm ceremony held by the Nordic Council, a regional body for inter-parliamentary cooperation. Thunberg had been nominated for her efforts by both Sweden and Norway and won the organisation's annual environment prize. But after it was announced, a representative for her told the audience that she would not accept the award or the prize sum of 52 thousand US dollars.
