Climate activist Greta Thunberg may only be 16 years old, but she's undeniably earned her place as a global icon, having inspired climate marches around the world. Like all things good and bad on this earth, however, her very existence was predicted by The Simpsons.

In a clip from The Simpsons Movie, Lisa Simpson (no, not the FOX executive) delivered an impassioned speech warning against environmental catastrophe due to the inaction of Springfield's government. It hits a lot of the same beats as Greta's speech.

Watch both speeches below, and continue to live in constant awe and fear at what Simpsons prediction may come true next. The show has anticipated everything from the Game of Thrones finale through Canada's legal weedthe Disney-Fox merger and Tycho album art

Greta Thunberg, meanwhile, has inspired a new death metal song and a new song from Raffi.
