The man who invented the dynamite

just in Time for the global climate day of the strike has proved the 24-year-old Norwegian socialist Freddy André Øvstegård, how much movement of political Marketing understands. Because he suggested Greta Thunberg named the winner of the Nobel peace prize – and triggered immediate global responses.

Who knows? The 16-year-old Swedish student with the wool cap and braids framed child's face has been fighting for months to the public against the risk of climate change. And, the world has mastered a symbolic figure for a Generation of highly, of it now enough with the promises, delays, and Denials of the politicians. The girl throws a flaming love, or burning hatred. Also, when you many as you formulated it for myself as an Asperger's autistic seems, to Black or White separated. "There is no gray in this debate," she says.

The peace prize, for the student, it is suggested, goes back to Sweden, Alfred Nobel (1833-1896), a multi-functional, more scholars-speaking and far-sighted. The man from Stockholm, in a poor family grew up, excelled as a chemist, engineer and inventor with 355 worldwide registered patents. Nobel was as a businessman and Investor rich, but remains as a philanthropist in memory.

The moral component

to relieve the Horror that he had reinforced with the invention of dynamite, bequeathed to the Nobel his fortune to a Foundation that distributes annually up to today, the prestigious Nobel prizes for scientific achievements that have helped the world. To talk the most of the peace prize are Nobel, if only because it contains a strong moral component. In addition, the Nobel prize-device-Academy regularly in suspicion, to award the prize out of political calculation.

The Committee nominated institutions such as Amnesty International or the international panel on climate change (IPCC), it honored individuals such as Albert Schweitzer, Andrei Sakharov, or Eli Wiesel. But it is also politicians who had not donated in her career, just peace: Woodrow Wilson, Mikhail Gorbachev, Barack Obama, Henry Kissinger and Aung San Suu Kyi rewarded. Then again you honoured cooperating mortal enemies such as Nelson Mandela and Frederik de Klerk, or Yassir Arafat, Yitzhak Rabin and Shimon Peres.

That Greta Thunberg warn in their actions, just repeating what scientists for decades, she has made it several times clear.

How you like to be bearers of the respective prize, if it still remembers you – it must be clear, however, what is also true for the rest of the Nobel prizes: should you not honor a promise, but a performance. Therefore, the first Nobel peace prize winner Henri means Dunant was the Swiss businessman who heard the cries of the Wounded on the battlefield of Solferino and Red cross founded.

Greta Thunberg has thanked for the honor of the Nobel prize Nomination already. They warn in their actions, just repeating what scientists for decades, she has made it several times clear. Would this year, a climate scientist for his outstanding performance excellent – Greta Thunberg would congratulate him guaranteed: in black and white.
