The photo shows three young children working at a gold mine in Canada, one of which is a girl sporting Greta’s signature hair braid and well, exact face. The picture was recently discovered in archives at the University of Washington. Historians believe the photo was taken around 1898.

Greta captured the world’s attention when she spoke at the UN Climate Action Summit this year where she arrived via sailboat, having boycott planes because of their environmental impact.

Greta boldly reprimanded US policymakers for not having stricter emissions standards.

There is no doubt that Thunberg is impressive and although the resemblance is uncanny, most of us are yet to be convinced the she can legitimately time travel. Then again if she is moving by teleportation that must be far less carbon foot print…
