A Greta Thunberg lookalike in a 121-year-old photo has sparked a new conspiracy theory about the environmentalist being a time traveler.
People on Twitter have started to claim that one of the people in the photo from 1898 that shows three children from the Yukon Territory in Canada has a face that’s so identical to Thunberg’s that it couldn’t possibly be anybody else. The girl said to be Thunberg also has the same braided hairstyle that the Swedish teen is known for. And although the timeline certainly doesn’t add up, many are saying that it’s proof that Thunberg is from a different time.

The photo was resurfaced from archives at the University of Washington. Those in favor of the conspiracy have even shared their logic that Thunberg must have traveled to 2019 to warn everyone about the detriment to the environment that is to come.
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. pic.twitter.com/5ObTjPFXvk

How eery is it that they both wear their hair the same way...A side plait, worn on same side! Time traveller or Greta in a past life? My mind is literally blown 🤯 #GretaThunberg pic.twitter.com/pOERjaeSR7

Some have offered up other explanations, suggesting that she’s either immortal or reincarnated.
This stuff on Greta Thunberg being a time traveller is ridiculous, there’s no such thing as time travel.
Quite obviously she’s just immortal.

How about reincarnation? It’s much more interesting than time travel...

Many still oppose the theory and the fact that so many people are talking about it.
There was a time not long ago when a "theory" like this would get a chuckle and if someone was seriously pushing it we may pity their instability. Nowadays any of these "theories" can grow legs and become "reality" to 1000's of Americans.

Why is everything else in the photo blurry except for the little girl's face and braid? I call BS.

But that won’t stop believers from holding onto the conspiracy.
Greta thunberg is a time traveller and nobody will change my mind.
