The Simpsons has yet again predicted the future after a clip from the show’s 2007 movie saw Lisa Simpson give almost the exact same speech on climate change as Greta Thunberg.

On Monday (September 23), Thunberg delivered an emotive speech at the United Nations where she called out world leaders for their inaction on climate change. You can read the full speech here.

Now, a clip has been unearthed of Lisa from The Simpsons movie attempting to save Springfield from the dangers of environmental catastrophe.

In one key sequence, Lisa gives a speech to her classmates about what could happen to Springfield in 50 years unless something is done to avert the inevitable damage of climate change. The clip, which you can view below, is remarkably similar to the speech given by Thunberg this week.

Sad how this young girl has been so roundly mocked by the right for taking science seriously and having so much compassion for her fellow human beings.

But it is indicative of how far the right will go, no matter the bounds, to have their way. It's very capitalist in flavor...kill or be killed. They live outside of civilization.

And there you have it. All evils are from the right to quill

This shows how warped the left are

Capitalism has continually gotten millions out of poverty.
No political concept has ever done so, but what does Quill do?
Yes Capitalism has problems, but this is used to go off climate change
Same question to Quill
What would you do to save this planet?
Would you give up urbanisation and civilisation and all those you love?
I get bored wirth the hypocrisy of the radical left.
To me they are biggest problem in the world today alongside the far right
If people are really interested in tackling climate chaneg. You forgo difference politically
Not blame each side and actually work together

Go figure

So to Didge, that justifies publicly ripping a teenage girl who's just trying to save the human race. How utterly fucking pathetic.

the right? are you talking about didge?

to be fair,ben all he did was post an article

i haven't seen what's being said about the girl but i think people are certainly allowed to criticise (obviously without being personal and nasty about it).

being critical is not being nasty or mocking

pointing out hypocrisies is not nasty or mocking

having a different viewpoint and arguing is not nasty or mocking

Ben has a bee in his bonnet tonight with me because I questioned the morality of humans in how they are first fand foremost swelfish for humans

I am going to bow out he allows Quill to be as antisemitic as he likes and that is okay, because jews are an easy target. Yet when i question conspiracies on cops. Which they would never apply to any minority group. Its acceptable to believe and have a standing position that cops are corrupt

This shows the left holds different standards and morality to groups they assign with and like
It shows the left are as morality corrupt as everyone else

I was the one who brought up the right. And no, I wasn't thinking of didge. I was musing over the brutality of the right, and thinking of how it is the core principle of capitalists.

The 16-year-old's words and actions have garnered backlash, including a mocking tweet from President Donald Trump. Thunberg responded in a Twitter thread on Wednesday.

"As you may have noticed, the haters are as active as ever — going after me, my looks, my clothes, my behavior and my differences," Thunberg said.

They come up with every thinkable lie and conspiracy theory. (Thread->)

She continued: "It seems they will cross every possible line to avert the focus, since they are so desperate not to talk about the climate and ecological crisis. Being different is not an illness and the current, best available science is not opinions — it's facts."

Who are the "people that matter", since they will be decisive according to you?
