World Needs To Make More Babies – Elon Musk

Elon Musk, a multibillionaire tech tycoon and father of ten children, stated on Monday that the world needs to “make more babies” and keep searching for oil.

The world is currently experiencing a “baby crisis,” according to the richest man on the globe, who has previously warned that low birth rates represent a “danger” to civilization. He made this statement ahead of an energy conference in Norway.

When asked what the biggest problems were, Musk mentioned the switch to renewable energy sources but also mentioned that the birth rate was “one of my favorite… things to be concerned about.”

“We don’t want the population to drop so low that we’ll just eventually die,” Musk, founder of American electric car manufacturer Tesla and SpaceX, told reporters in Stavanger, southwest Norway.

“At least make enough babies sustain the population,” he added.

Many Western societies and populated countries such as China are facing declining birth rates and aging societies.

“They say civilization might die with a bang or with a whimper,” added Musk. “If we don’t have enough kids, then we will die with a whimper in adult diapers. And that will be depressing.”

He also said the planet still needed new fossil fuel sources.

“I think realistically we do need to use oil and gas in the short term because otherwise, civilization would crumble,”  he said, adding that “some additional exploration is warranted at this time.”

He went on to advocate the maintenance of nuclear power plants, describing himself as “pro-nuclear.”

Several European countries had decided to phase out nuclear power, but following Moscow’s invasion of Ukraine in February and Europe’s subsequent push to wean itself off of Russian oil and gas, the nuclear debate has reignited.

“I know this may be an unpopular view in some quarters, but I think if you have a well-designed nuclear power plant, you should not shut it down,” Musk said.

The businessman, who has been divorced three times, has fathered 10 children, one of whom died at 10 weeks old.

Earlier this year, one of his children, who recently turned 18, filed a petition in a California court to change her name and gender identity to female.

Court documents said that she did not want “to be related to my biological father in any way, shape or form” as one of the reasons for the name change.

Musk also has two children with the musician Grimes, a girl they named Exa Dark Sideræl Musk – although the parents said they will mostly call her Y – and a boy born in May 2020 called “X Æ A-12”, or more simply, X.

Musk announced last autumn that he was “semi-separated” from the singer.
