The Simpsons Predicted the Rise of Greta Thunberg - The Simpsons are known as the show that predicts the future 1

The Simpsons are known as the show that predicts the future. They knew that Donald Trump will become President and … Active, they also expected the rise of Greta Thunberg. 10 years ago. In the seventeenth episode of the twentieth season, “The Good, the Sad and Drugly,” Lisa was assigned to write a report on what Springfield will look like the year 2059. When she discovered online reports on soap used in the drink instead of water, a world war on a small drop of oil, lots of parking still fill for ever, and the last polar bear suicide, she was filled with anxiety and depression and terrified classmates with dark visions of sea level rise of global warming, transforming humanity and plains in a desert and darkness falls on Nineveh. Sounds familiar?

After the speech of the UN Thunberg, people started comparing the tone for the presentation of Lisa, and you can not really blame them for that. Some have even taken further, saying that Greta is the version of the real life of Lisa. And it is not far-fetched, too. Think about it, Lisa is a thinking intelligent young, outspoken girl who is not afraid to important subjects, no matter how many adults try to silence. It is the most important activist of the entire show. Kinda the same way that Greta is now ours.
