16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg nominated for Nobel Peace Prize

"With our futures at stake, we call for radical legislative action to combat climate change and its countless detrimental effects on the American people".

Children at tens of thousands of schools in more than 100 countries are due to take part in the walkouts which began a year ago when one teenager - Greta Thunberg - held a solo protest outside the Swedish parliament.

'We are only seeing the beginning, ' Ms Thunberg tweeted recently.
