A photo taken 121 years ago has sparked an internet conspiracy theory. Are you sitting down?
Climate activist Greta Thunberg is a time-traveler who landed in 2019 to save the Earth!
The picture shows three children during the Gold Rush of 1898. Shot by Eric Hegg in the Yukon territory of northwestern Canada, it is part of the University of Washington’s Special Collections archive.
Twitter was in awe of the resemblance between the girl in the image and Greta and one user wrote,
“So ‘Greta Thunberg’ is in a photo from 120 years ago, and it’s my new favourite conspiracy. Greta’s a time traveller, from the future, and she’s here to save us.”
Well, actually this explains a lot. (Does it?)

To those saying ‘How can she be in the past if she’s from the future?!?’ Obviously, as a time traveller, she can travel to ANY time period. She obviously tried to go back 120 years, didn’t work, and now she’s here. Obviously! 🙄— Jack – J.S. Strange (@JackSamStrange) November 20, 2019
Maybe she is from the future who was sent back in time to key moments in history to stop climate change 🤯😂 https://t.co/FH0TFlCvKm— Kelly Edwards (@KellyEdwardsWPG) November 19, 2019
Please Mr Spielberg buy rights to make the #GretaThunberg time travel movie we’re waiting for.— FlaviKon (@flavikon) November 20, 2019
120-year-old photo sparks theories that climate activist & environmental heroine, @GretaThunberg , is, in fact, a ‘time-travel’ who has traveled thru time to save our planet! Wishing her all the best and success in her mission to save the Earth. We can use the help we can get! https://t.co/YCJ35l4irh— Dean Friedman (@DeanFriedman) November 21, 2019
