Greta Thunberg’s nomination for the Nobel Peace Prize has been lauded by mainstream media outlets and public figures in Europe, but not everyone is as enthusiastic. Only 15% of Germans welcome the idea, a new poll found.
66 percent of German citizens responded with a clear ‘no’ to the prospect of Thunberg being given the prestigious award, according to a YouGov survey on climate change and the environment. Only 15 percent supported the nomination and 19 percent were undecided.
葛丽泰 · 桑伯格获得诺贝尔和平奖的提名，受到了欧洲主流媒体和公众人物的赞扬，但并非所有人都如此热情。一项新的民意调查发现，只有15% 的德国人欢迎这个想法。
根据 YouGov 在气候变化和环境方面的调查，66% 的德国公民对桑伯格获得这个有声望的奖项的前景表示明确的否定。 只有15% 的人支持提名，19% 的人尚未决定。
“Greta Thunberg has launched a mass movement which I see as a major contribution to peace,” explained Freddy Andre Ovstegard of the Socialist Party.
“葛丽泰 · 桑伯格发起了一场群众运动，我认为这是对和平的重大贡献，”社会党的弗雷迪 · 安德烈 · 奥夫斯蒂加德解释说。
If awarded the Peace Prize on October 11, the 16-year-old would become the youngest member of the hall of fame comprised of UN peacekeepers, the International Committee of the Red Cross or political heavyweights like Nelson Mandela, Mikhail Gorbachev or Henry Kissinger.
Greta was thrust into the limelight last year, when she began her lone protest outside the Swedish parliament to demand robust measures against global warming and an environmental crisis.Hundreds of thousands of people followed suit, joining regular ‘Fridays for Future’ strikes, but her confrontational activism has also attracted scorn and condemnation.
US President Donald Trump, a climate change skeptic, writing in a sarcastic tweet: “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!”
美国总统唐纳德 · 特朗普，一个气候变化怀疑论者，在一条讽刺的推文中写道: “她看起来是一个非常快乐的年轻女孩，期待着一个光明的未来。见到你真高兴! ”
Russian President Vladimir Putin also commented on the young Swede, calling her who nevertheless fails to comprehend the realities of sustainable development and a “complex world.”“When someone is using children and teenagers in personal interests, it only deserves to be condemned,” he warned.
Just like giving it to Obama, then Obama bombed innocent people. Nobel price is just a joke, good for a comedian stage. Only good if it is about science, not in 'peace'
I stopped paying attention when they gave it to Kissinger.
Since Obama got it after dropping 200.000 bombs on foreign countries that were not attacking anyone...The so called peace prize ceased to have any validity at all! Who the hell would want it??
自从奥巴马在无辜的国家投下200,000枚炸弹之后得到这个奖... 所谓的和平奖根本就没有任何意义了！ 到底是谁想要它？

Perhaps Putin should be given the Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts to bring the Syrian war to an end .
Both Putin and Lavrov are great ambassadors for peace .
I didnt know 15% of Germans decided the Nobel Peace prize....
WTF. A young child being used as a political weapon. Even worse than giving O'bummer one ..
Just stop talking about her, she doesn't deserve any attention. She is the tool of green socialists.
she has not killed enough people to earn it
After Obama got it, it has come to symbolize nothing at all. So who cares who gets it now!
One needs to be 'NOBLE' to receive a Nobel prize.
Get her back to school for the education that she so obviously needs.
She is prizeworthy for drawing the attention of millions to problems of the world that our so called leaders have been sweeping under the carpet...And just what have you done which qualifies you to judge a sixteen year old and label them??
Nobel Peace Prize? For what? That thing is a joke anymore.
诺贝尔和平奖? 凭什么? 那东西不过是个笑话。
she doesn't deserve it, she only did a speech why would you give a Nobel prize to a girl who only talked!
Wow. Since when the Nobel Peace Prize became so cheap?
I vote that they use her picture on toilet paper...
To clean up the world.
greta has not killed enough people to earn a nobel prize
She is literally sowing discord. Next they will say Hitler was bringing peace through conquest.
