It seems that when the climate-change activist, Greta Thunberg, isn't out shouting at world leaders, hanging out with Leonardo DiCaprio, or riding bikes with Arnold Schwarzenegger, she is traveling back in time.
Yep, the latest internet rumor is that the Swedish teenager is actually a time-traveler. I think I've had enough of the internet for one day...
A 120-year-old photograph has recently gone viral after it apparently pictures the youngster herself, working at a gold mine. Conspiracy theorists are convinced that it's solid evidence of her apparent time-travel, while others aren't so convinced.
Keep scrolling for the full details, and to see the spooky photo itself...
Greta Thunberg has become the face of the youth climate change movement.
Just a year ago, she was relatively unknown.
via: TwitterGreta would regularly sit on her own outside Swedish parliament, first staging a "School Strike for Climate" in August last year. In the weeks leading up to the country’s general election, Thunberg sat on the steps outside of the parliament building in Stockholm, holding up the now-iconic sign that read “Skolstrejk För Klimatet" — translating to “school strike for climate."
The teen sat outside the building during school hours for 3 weeks.Paris Agreement. By sacrificing her education to protest for action, the teen began to conjure up attention and gain traction online.
Her unwavering commitment to the environment has woken the rest of the world.
Thunberg is known for delivering blistering, matter-of-fact speeches about the urgency of what she calls the "climate crisis."
Her message is clear: we need to act now.According to the United Nations, humanity has under twelve years to prevent a climate change crisis. A report released by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) at the end of 2018 called for immediate “unprecedented changes" to all aspects of society.
If we do not act, the future, if there is one at all, will be very bleak.
Thunberg has gone to great lengths to fight her cause.
Little by little, her trailblazing activism seems to be sinking in.Live Kindly, earlier this year, Mohammed Barkindo — the secretary-general of OPEC (the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries) — acknowledged public opinion surrounding the climate crisis as a threat to the oil industry.
And her youth school strike movement is growing on a mass scale.
She has attracted the attention of millions of people across the globe...

But now, Greta is in the headlines for an entirely new, and rather unexpected reason...
via: GettySome conspiracy theorists have come up with a rather interesting theory about the teenager.
The latest Greta rumor?
via: GettyPeople now believe that the teenager is a time-traveler. Apparently.
No, this is not a joke.
via: GettyAn ancient photo has been unearthed which apparently shows the teenager hard at work with 3 other children.
It doesn't sound too out of the ordinary, right?
via: GettyWell, the strange part about it, is that the photograph is estimated to have been taken in 1898... Meaning it dates back a staggering 120 years.
The picture was discovered in the photo archives at the University of Washington...
via: GettyAnd the uncanniness of the child is simply mind-blowing.
Here is the photograph in question.3 children are seen working hard at, what is believed to be, a gold mine in the Yukon Territory in Canada.
Take a closer look...The child on the bottom left looks awfully familiar, doesn't she?
The conspiracy theorists have been going crazy...
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 (@Kelly Edwards)1574169383.0
But, despite the overwhelming belief in time-travel...
I'm not one for conspiracy theories but she is 100 per cent a time traveller - https://t.co/bdng856uag— Simon Binns (@Simon Binns)1574167654.0
Others aren't too convinced, and simply believe that it's a photoshop job, with one user writing, "That has to be photoshopped surely, they’re identical."As for the truth? We may never find out...
