The name Greta Thunberg has almost become synonymous with climate change. She has been the most outspoken climate change activist since Al Gore and has definitely raised awareness for the myth.
Part of the reason she has gained so much popularity is because she’s so young yet she appears to be so smart. But many people wonder if her speeches are all scripted and well-rehearsed. I believe that it is very likely that this is the case just based on what little evidence I’ve seen.
However, maybe she’s not so smart after all.
Facebook recently had a glitch that exposed people who are really posting content on another’s page and it appears that we have some solid evidence that the things that Thunberg is saying aren’t her own words. It looks like it was her dad who has been posting for her.
According to Wired,
Facebook says the bug was the result of a code update that it pushed Thursday evening. It’s not something most people would have encountered on their own, since it took navigating to a Page, viewing an edit history, and realizing that there shouldn’t be a name and profile picture assigned to edits to exploit it. Still, despite the Friday morning fix, screenshots circulated on 4chan, Imgur, and social media appearing to show the accounts behind the official Facebook Pages of the pseudonymous artist Banksy, Russian president Vladimir Putin, former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, the hacking collective Anonymous, climate activist Greta Thunberg, and rapper Snoop Dogg, among others.
Facebook points out that no information beyond a name and public profile link were available, but that information isn’t supposed to appear in the edit history at all. And for people, say, running anti-regime Pages under a repressive government, making even that much information public is plenty alarming.
Even though the Facebook glitch didn’t result in any personally information being leaked, it still provided names in which some were able to dox individuals.
