Tesla CEO Musk's summit speech: More children can prevent the collapse of human civilization

According to reports, Tesla CEO Elon Musk (Elon Musk) said today that the claim that "people don't have children because it is bad for the environment" is complete nonsense. . To this end, he also called on people to have more children to prevent the collapse of civilization.


Earlier today, Musk said at the "All-in Summit" via video conference: "Some people think that having fewer children is better for the environment. This is complete nonsense. Even if our population doubles, The environment will also be good.”


Musk also said that if not increasing the population, at least keep the population. "We don't necessarily have to drastically increase the population, but at least we don't let us gradually decline to the end of human civilization (without humans)," he said.


Musk has provided no evidence to support his claims. But it was previously reported that Swedish researchers found in 2017 that having one less child per family in developed countries could reduce carbon emissions by about 58.6 tons per year.


But other experts say lifestyle changes, and changes to support climate policies, have a bigger impact on the environment than having more children.


Musk also said that if people don't have children, humanity itself will collapse.


In fact, Musk has previously expressed concerns about the global birth rate. In December he warned that if people didn't have enough children, "civilization will collapse". It said last week that Japan could be "defunct" because of falling birth rates.


While birth rates are indeed falling in some countries, the latest edition of the 2019 UN World Population Prospects report projects that the global population could reach 9.7 billion in 2050, up from 7.7 billion in 2019.
