Greta Thunberg: Youth Climate Activist and 137 Year Old Time Traveler?

Conspiracy theories and other distractions from the incoming climate apocalypse.

An 1898 image from The University of Washington archives depicting 3 children working in a Canadian mine went viral recently. Why? Because one of the children looks eerily similar to our beloved youth climate activist, Greta Thunberg. 

The Greta doppelgänger has the internet in a flurry. Is she a wise time traveler transcending the space-time continuum to warn humanity of incoming disaster?

Unsurprisingly, Greta has yet to comment.

Viral conspiracy theories like Avril Lavigne’s post-mortum replacement body-double, flat earth, and varied opinions on whatever the heck is underneath the Denver airport have chilled and thrilled Internet users– believers and doubters alike. Greta Thunberg “Time Traveler” isn’t even the whackiest of them. In fact, she isn’t even the first suspected celebrity time traveler. Jay-Z came under the same heat in 2013.

Although this conspiracy has set the internet ablaze, it probably isn’t what Greta meant when she said,

I want you to act as if the house was on fire, because it is.

Which begs the question: why are we spending hours on internet conspiracy theories and neglecting the existential threat that is climate change?

If Greta were here, she may say something along the lines of:

Enough of the past, our futures are at stake.
