Teen climate activist Greta Thunberg is the odds-on favorite to be awarded this year’s Nobel Peace Prize.
A number of bookmakers in Europe and Betfair, which operates the largest online betting exchange in the world, show the odds overwhelmingly in Thunberg’s favor to become the next recipient of the prestigious honor.
However, despite odds from a number of bookies showing the scale tipped in Thunberg’s favor for the award, it remains unclear if Thunberg is in the running for a chance at the honor as the candidates for the award aren’t typically announced beforehand.
Still, some say Thunberg, whose activism helped spark widespread climate demonstrations across the globe, has a fighting chance of being awarded the prize, which will be announced next Friday.
