A picture of a Greta Thunberg lookalike taken over a century ago has thrown conspiracy theorists into a meltdown.

Before we go into all of that, you may be wondering, who is Greta Thunberg? And why is the possibility of her being a time traveler so interesting for a lot of people?

According to NatGeoKids, Greta made a name for herself as an environmental activist despite being only 16 years old. At the age of 8, she became concerned about climate change and in 2018, she made waves when she chose not sit calmly outside the Swedish parliament in hopes of getting them to do something to stop global warming.

Greta's strike basically went viral and before long, thousands of children all over the world joined the #FridaysforFuture strike by skipping school on Fridays in protest of climate change.

Greta Thunberg news - A possible time traveler?

The impressive activist became a subject of a conspiracy theory recently after a picture taken over a century ago showed a young girl who looked exactly like her.

The DailyMail reported that conspiracy theorists were doing a double-take when they saw an 1898 picture showing the Greta Thunberg lookalike.

The photo showed three children who seemed to be getting water from a well in Canada and it was apparently snapped over 121 years ago. One of the girls looked bizarrely similar to the climate change activist we know today.

It was reported that this old picture was recently discovered in an archive from the University of Washington.

Conspiracy theorists started reposting the photo on social media while stating that Greta Thunberg in 2019 is likely a visitor from both the past and the future.

Social media reaction

The possibility that Greta could be a time traveler from the future interested a lot of people who posted comments about their beliefs.

Evidently, the general opinion was that future Greta realizes the damages that have been done to the earth so she travels back in time to 1898 to stop this from happening. And ultimately decided to travel to the present time to make a change.

Of course, no one actually believes that the activist is a time traveler. But you have to admit that the possibility is fun to consider. And the idea that she traveled to the present to save the earth is pretty fascinating too.
