Full title: GRETA THUNBERG SNUBBED FOR NOBEL PEACE PRIZE BY COMMITTEE RUN BY NORWAY, ONE OF THE WORLD'S BIGGEST OIL AND NATURAL GAS
The Nobel Committee has surprised oddsmakers by not picking 16-year-old Greta Thunberg to win the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.
The five-member Norwegian panel instead announced on Friday that Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed had won the award, "for his efforts to achieve peace and international cooperation, and for in particular his decisive initiative to resolve the border conflict with neighboring Eritrea," a statement said.
Thunberg has become the figurehead of the youth climate movement after skipping school to protest outside the Swedish Parliament in August 2018, inspiring the waves of student strikes that followed.
Over the last year, she has (among other things) led a Global Climate Strike spanning 150 countries, graced the cover of Time Magazine as a 'Next Generation Leader' and sailed across the Atlantic Ocean in a yacht to speak to lawmakers in Washington and New York.

How dare they?
She should get a Participation Nobel at least.
St. Greta’s handlers were counting on that Nobel prize money. Vote again until you get it right...
The Organ Grinder deserves the prize. She’s just the monkey with the cup.
Nasty little brat needs to fall into an unexpected hole.
A Friday feel good story!
Being a spoiled brat is no longer enough for a prize. Barack Hussein is lucky he got his before they raised their (shockingly low) standards.
There’s always next year and future years. If she makes a career iutnif global warming, she will eventually get the prize.
What in hell is “peaceful” about spreading stupidity?
She’s more qualified than Obama.
“St. Gretas handlers were counting on that Nobel prize money. Vote again until you get it right...”
BJ’s wife can help her with that, but I’m not sure she likes them that young.
And Greta doesn’t look the type to appreciate Joe’s groping.
Scoldilocks is a disgrace, so are her child-abusing parents.
But don’t worry, IMHO the jack@sses on the Nobel Prize committee will eventually give her an award.
These are the same @sses who gave the Nobel Peace Prize to Bath House Barry in 2009. They really liked his international apology tour, they loved the fact that he told dozens of foreign countries what a sh*tty country the U.S. is.
Oopsy, Greta’s parents just cancelled that new home contract. No one million dollars for you. Go ask Uncle George or Bono, maybe they can front you the coin for your much sought after upscale lifestyle.
For once they made a logical decision.
The little climate clowns acts have nothing to do with peace.
The Ethiopian guy’s resolving a border conflict does.
I could care less......but that would be too much work.
If the committee apologized for giving one to the likes of Obama and Arafat, then they would have my attention.
I figured that little truancy advocate would get one though.
time to go back across the ocean and back to schoooo ... (is it me, or does this child have the strangest accent?) I have Swedish nationals in my family and their english sounds like nothing hers.
