No Internet, Greta Thunberg Is NOT a 120 Year Old Time Traveler!


I mean, I don’t think she is.

Not possible…is it?

What am I talking about?

Well, here’s the thing.  

A photo was discovered today that many people are saying HAS to be fake.  HAS to be photoshopped. 

Except….even People Magazine has now confirmed that the photo is real and is part of the University of Washington archives:

However, the black-and-white picture is actually part of the University of Washington’s archives.

Here’s the photo:

Here's more from People:

Climate activist Greta Thunberg has a doppelgänger — and the uncanny resemblance has the internet joking that perhaps the teen is actually a time traveler.

A circa-1898 photo that shows three children working at a gold mine on Dominion Creek in the Yukon Territory in Canada has sent social media into a tizzy thanks to one of the children’s striking similarities to Thunberg.

The girl, who is in the left of the photo, is even wearing a braid in her hair, which is 16-year-old Thunberg’s signature style.

The first link between the photo and the Swedish teen appears to have come on Nov. 9, when Facebook user Allison White shared the snap after spotting it hanging at Pike Place Market in Seattle.

The New York Post had more, including their official opinion that Thunberg is not -- cannot be -- a time traveler:

Well, she’s impressive, but she’s not that impressive.

Conspiracy theorists are at it again over a 120-year-old photo depicting a girl who bears an uncanny resemblance to teen environmental activist Greta Thunberg.

The photo, unearthed from archives at the University of Washington, shows three children working at a gold mine in Canada, including a girl wearing Thunberg’s signature braid and stoic expression.

Historians believe it was taken around 1898.

Thunberg, 16, took the world by storm when she arrived at the UN Climate Action Summit from her native Sweden this year via sailboat — having sworn off airplanes because of their environmental impact. 

She spoke bluntly to US policymakers at the summit for not having stricter emissions standards.

“How dare you? You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words,” she said at the time.

Thunberg is currently looking to hitch another low-carbon ride across the Atlantic after protests in Chile forced a venue change for an environmental summit.

And while her activism is powerful — nabbing her a cover slot on Time magazine — her ability to time-travel is not, contrary to the Twitter conspiracy mill.

Come on people!

Grow up!

What's next, you're gonna tell me Nic Cage is an ageless Vampire?

Oh wait......
