Oct 10, 2019 07:00AM

Sep. 23, 2019 when a sixteen year old Swedish teenager gave a speech on climate change, it immediately went viral. Now that same climate activist, Greta Thunberg is the betting favorite to win the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize.

The impresssive & passionate delivery to world leaders last month at the United Nations was not news to most Americans.  Thunberg first gained attention in 2018 after leading a strike outside the Swedish Parliament and has since issued a call to action on climate change and its dire consequences in speeches all over Europe.

Paddy Power lists Thunberg at -175 in its latest assessment of potential Nobel Peace Prize recipients. The winner will be announced at 6 a.m. ET Oct. 11 at the Norwegian Nobel Institute in Oslo, Norway. Thunberg would become the youngest Nobel laureate of all time and has been given a serious edge by European bookmakers. Betting on the Nobel Prize and politics is not available in the United States.
