It's pretty strange that climate change is even an issue. Empirical data and evidence should trump "feelings" and "opinions" on situations. Like no matter how much I want to "believe" Tim Cappello invented the saxophone, that isn't true — the man just perfected how to play it. Which is what makes the "politics" of climate change so strange. People want to deny its existence so badly they began to verbally attack a teenage Greta Thunberg, but at least we have her time traveler Reddit theory.
Reddit has "proof" that Greta Thunberg is a time traveler.
And by "proof" I mean this photo of a young girl who looks exactly like Greta Thunberg, something that was pointed out by author J.S. Strange on Twitter in November of 2019. The picture of the young woman in the photograph is basically Greta Thunberg. The resemblance is so uncanny that people began sharing memes depicting the teen as some kind of time-traveling prophet from the future, warning our species of what we've subjected the planet to.
OK, so obviously the girl in the photo is Greta Thunberg because she's managed to discover a way to break the illusory fabric of time our species has fallen victim to in our limited perception. But let's entertain for a second that Greta isn't a time traveler, so what's the "practical" explanation for who the young girl is in the photo that's been making the rounds on the internet?
Well, as it turns out, the photograph is actually one of three kids accompanying their folks in the Canadian Yukon, sifting for gold in the hopes of striking it rich and changing their fortunes. The picture was snapped around 1898.
Interestingly enough, Greta completely avoided the subject after it was broached online, or did she? She did happen to post this black and white photo that only further corroborated the time traveler theory.
I want to thank all the people who I’ve met I North America for their incredible hospitality. And thank you all for your amazing support!— Greta Thunberg (@GretaThunberg) November 13, 2019

People, of course, had jokes for days about the intentions behind Greta's time hopping ways.
Others want this whole "time-traveling" thing to just stop already, because, you know, they're no fun. Or they just haven't seen Keanu Reeves recently.
Greta Thunberg's critics are very concerned about her parents' net worth.
The climate change activist rustled a lot of people's jimmies, and those who started decrying her opinions believed that because her mother is an opera singer and her father is an actor, that they must have money, and because they have money, her political ideologies are invalid.
Greta Thunberg is just a rich spoiled kid who spoke a nonsense scripted dialogue. The hype is unwarranted.— JK (@Heisenwalt007) November 6, 2020
Little rich girl. Slave of comunism and progressism. U save the world, no? Hater child.— agente Mulder 🇦🇷 (@nacionyfuerza) November 6, 2020
Greta also recently made headlines when she used Donald Trump's own words against him after it was projected he lost the 2020 presidential election to Joe Biden. She said:
"So ridiculous. Donald must work on his Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Donald, chill!"

Who is Greta Thunberg? She seems very young Does she go to school? And she doesn't, how is going to make a living? Lavishly, on millions of her rich donors, traveling on their private jets and crying about climate change? Just wonder!🤷♀️
Seriously? She graduated from secondary school with 14 A’s & 2 B’s, & took a zero-emissions solar powered boat from England to New York after she was asked to speak to the House Select Committee on Climate Crisis. After her 2019 gap year, she started school this past August.— Amber Kinzie (@AmberKinziee) November 5, 2020
Obviously, you can imagine how folks on both side of the political spectrum felt about her comment, with Trump supporters piling hate on the young woman, and liberals gobbling up her shade.
