FANS of The Simpsons believe the show predicted Greta Thunberg’s clash with Donald Trump over her climate change campaign.
In one of the episodes of the much-loved US cartoon, the character Lisa Simpson campaigns to help save the environment and makes an emotional speech.
It’s not the first time The Simpsons has seemingly predicted the future.
In the episode Bart to the Future which aired in 2000, a grown-up Lisa Simpson is seen as the US president and while she sits in the White House she says: “We’ve inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump”.
The satire on US life is also said to have predicted a number of other real-life events such as the Ebola virus, Greece’s economic collapse and corruption within FIFA.
The well-known environmentalist Thunberg recently made a tearful speech at the United Nations Climate Summit.
The 16-year-old slammed the assembled leaders, telling them they had “stolen” her childhood.
As the US President arrived at the meeting Thunberg could be seen glaring at Trump.
Mr Trump, 73, later tweeted: “She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future. So nice to see!”
Thunberg told the summit: “I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back in school on the other side of the ocean. Yet you all come to us for hope.
“How dare you. You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and yet all you can talk about is money. You are failing us.”
