Xiye Bastida

The World Economic Forum has spoken and chosen its newest climate change darling – Xiye Bastida. Greta Thunberg has been replaced by a more diverse candidate from the Otomi-Toltec Indigenous community in Mexico who is based in New York City. The WEF said she is one of the top 10 women to watch in 2024, as she will become the new voice of the climate change movement.

The 21-year-old was selected to mobilize 600 college students from the University of Pennsylvania to strike against climate change initiative. She then was selected to head a 300,000 person climate strike in New York City. She is the co-founder of Re-Earth Initiative and an organizer with Fridays for the Future. President Joe Biden invited her to speak at the Climate Summit in 2021, and she was also invited to participate in the World Leaders Summit at COP26.

“Xiye is a leading speaker about climate justice activism, Indigenous and immigrant visibility, and the power of Generation Z,” her website claims. This girl is absolutely everywhere – CNN, Forbes, The Hill, The Guardian, BBC, Vox, La Repubblica, Elle, The New York Times, Teen Vogue, HuffPost, and others are suddenly launching articles featuring Xiye. They have been building her character line for years and are ready to launch her into the spotlight.

She is the perfect candidate for the WEF agenda since she can reach a bilingual audience but has footing in the USA. “Climate change is a generation injustice,” she told the crowd at COP26, stating that emissions simply must “stop.” She then asked the COP2 to deliver an astounding $100 BILLION to the “most vulnerable nations” but would like to see that figure rise anywhere from $140 to $300 BILLION by 2025. Good luck, kid.
