The richest man on earth, Elon Musk revealed during an interview with journalist, Joanna Stern on Monday, Dec. 6, that here are not enough people on earth and civilization will crumble if birth rates keeps declining.
The Tesla CEO and father of 6 revealed he is practicing what he is preaching and importantly doing his part to populate the earth.
“There are not enough people. I can’t emphasize this enough, there are not enough people. I think one of the biggest risks to civilization is the low grow rate and the rapidly-declining grow rate. And yet so many people – including smart people – think there are too many people in the world and think the population is growing out of control. It’s completely the opposite. Please look at the numbers, if people don’t have more children, civilization is going to crumble. Mark my words. Musk, who has six kids, said he’s doing his part to populate the Earth. I’m trying to set a good example. I’m trying to practice what I preach.”
