The richest man in the world, Elon Musk, stated that the low and rapidly declining birth rate was “one of the greatest threats to civilization.” “If people don’t have more children, civilization will collapse. Remember my words,” he added.

Musk spoke on a wide variety of topics at a meeting organized by The Wall Street Journal. Among the issues there were, among others demography.

“People are missing. I emphasize: people are missing,” said the founder of Tesla. In his opinion, too many “good and wise people” believe that there are too many people in the world and that the population is growing too quickly, which negatively affects the environment and could lead to a climate catastrophe. The world population now numbers nearly 8 billion people, twice as many as less than 50 years ago and four times more than nearly 100 years. Experts estimate that in the next thirty years we will reach 10 billion, even though the birth rate – as in the last few decades – will continue to decline. The population will get older.

“If people don’t have more children, civilization will collapse. Remember my words,” emphasized Musk, father of six.
