Teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg has 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.
