Greta Thunberg Quietly Deletes False Doomsday Prediction
In 2018, Greta Thunberg made a bold prediction: that by 2023, the world would be facing an irreversible disaster due to climate change. Fast forward to March 15th, 2023 and her prediction has been proven false. She even tweeted about it, but now, Greta quietly deleted the tweet she made back then. Why do you think that is?
For those of you who may not actually know who Greta Thunberg is, she’s a Swedish environmental activist who rose to fame in 2018 when she began protesting outside of the Swedish Parliament. She quickly became a leader of the youth climate movement and was even nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize in 2019. Her activism has led her all over the world, speaking at events such as the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York City and Davos Economic Forum in Switzerland.
Her original tweet from 2018 read: “We have less than 10 years left to prevent an irreversible disaster.” This statement sparked fear among many people around the world who were already concerned about climate change and its effects on our planet. However, it appears that Greta’s prediction was too pessimistic; here we are now in 2023 with no signs of an impending disaster.
Despite this, Greta still remains an important figure in the fight against climate change and continues to advocate for more action from governments and corporations alike. She recently spoke out against a decision by the United Nations to let an oil executive chair climate talks, calling it “ridiculous” and saying that lobbyists should not be allowed to influence policy decisions on such an important issue.
It is clear that Greta Thunberg’s original prediction of irreversible disaster by 2023 has been proven false. Just another false doomsday prediction to add to the ever-growing list.
