Greta Thunberg has accomplished a lot in her young 16-year old life, from speaking at a United Nations conference, leading a worldwide strike for climate change, and even being on the cover of Time magazine … but could this be her biggest “accomplishment” to date?

A 120-year old photo surfaced earlier this week that shows a girl that bears a very uncanny resemblance to Thunberg, from the same stoic expression to her signature braids. The photo, unearthed from archives at the University of Washington, shows three children working at a gold mine in Canada, including Greta’s “twin. (https://www.udenar.edu.co/) ” 

Of course, the internet couldn’t pass up the chance to comment, with some users on Twitter calling her a “time traveler” and asking if she knows about her long-lost twin.

Unfortunately, the rumors are false: “That is not Greta Thunberg [in the photo],” said James Stack, a reference librarian at the University of Washington, where the photo came from.

It is possible that the girl was a member of the Swedish community in the Yukon at the time, when thousands of people from around the world came in search of gold.

Multiple news outlets have reached out to Greta for comment, but she has not responded yet. Chances are she’s busy modifying her time machine with solar panels.
