Greta Thunberg, the young climate activist recently has gotten herself in headlines all over the world after deleting her tweet from 2018. The tweet entails that if we do not stop using fossil fuels, by 2023 it will wipe out humanity. Pretty intense for an activist to say that.
According to the Daily Mail, numerous prominent conservatives have swiftly ridiculed the environmentalist for the apparent blunder. This is a situation Thunberg is familiar with, because of her previous encounters with Andrew Tate and Donald Trump.
Charlie Kirk, founder of the conservative organisation Turning Point USA, tweeted: “One of the best headlines of the year so far… ‘Greta Thunberg deletes 2018 tweet claiming the world will end in 2023 after the world does not end.'”

A number of conservative users flock to Clown World’s Twitter page after they uploaded a screenshot of the news. Moreover, one post cites that the wrong people are getting the attention, meanwhile, credible researchers such as Dr. Judith Curry is getting no media coverage.
So according to her, humanity is officially over since we are still using fossil fuels. It was a good run. Since we didn’t stop and life will eventually end, can we go back to cheap energy for the last few years before we all die?

Another internet user successfully unearthed a screenshot of her removed tweet. In response to her earlier statement, some individuals humorously expressed their hopes for lower fossil fuel prices before humanity’s demise. Additionally, the commenter asserted that, overall, humans have experienced a good journey.
Since we didn't make the necessary changes, we must be doomed. Might as well give up and enjoy the time we have left.
