Greta Thunberg, the teenage environmental activist, really tries to walk the talk.
She turned down a major environmental prize.
"It is a huge honor," Thunberg said of the Nordic Council Environment Prize. "But the climate movement does not need any more awards."
"What we need is for our politicians and the people in power to start listening to the current, best available science," she added.
The award Thunberg rejected came with prize money of 350,000 Danish kroner — about $52,000.
For a young girl I think that is pretty impressive, but was it wise? I don't know.... that money could have been used to help the environment?
