Elon Musk argued for higher birth rates again, saying otherwise we will all "end up in adult diapers."

Genius billionaire brain at work again here, folks.  See, by having more kids, that means the people who would age into adult diapers will instead... Well you know what he means if you're smart enough and invested in Bitcoin, Tesla, and SpaceX. After all, with more kids, the ecological problems of "diapering" an ever-growing, ever-aging population are basically solved by the younger generation at that point.

What I'm saying is it all Depends and we have to outlaw abortion to save the planet, obviously.

Woooo! MUSK(R) 4 PREZ 2024!

I love how we have to listen to crazy motherf*ckers just because they stole a lot of money in various stock schemes.

I've seen pics of Indian farming, they really need co-ops and automation. They're harvesting with sickels. Not even basket sycthes.

Also Elon:  "Everyone should be working 80 hours a week, 70 minimum, preferably more like 100".   With plenty of stories of people with kid duties getting bumped out of his companies.

The US hasn't been above the fertility replacement rate since 1972.  Latin America and Asia are trending the same.  Sub-Saharan Africa is surging, but they will slack off eventually.  I don't think we're ever going to touch 16 billion, thank God.

I think the world pop. will peak slightly below 10bn, and within the lifetime of the average person on this site today.

JFC he is stupid for a smart guy.

The environment/planet can hold (could have held) 2 billion people sustainably.

WTF is up with all the greedy mofos insisting profits must always increase exponentially, as in infinite growth, as though the planet itself held infinite resources?  The human population and the planet from which they were born cannot sustain that kind of greed.

I shake my head and weep for the world.  Absolute morons at every turn, now featuring psychotic sociopaths who see politics as a will-to-power, not an opportunity to serve their fellow human.

I wish people would stop calling him smart.  I mean, maybe he is?  But I've never seen him do anything or behave in a way that leads me to believe that is the case.   People just seem to assume he's smart because.... He bought a thing?   I don't get it.

The earth can probably support three times the current population if resources are distributed properly. The fact that one of the richest people on earth is advocating for that kind of redistribution is one of the great ironies of our age, and I don't think he realizes he kind of debate he just waded into. This can only work under a globalized UBI welfare state.

If Elon's wealth alone was redistributed, it could sustain several nations worth of daily food rations, including production & transportation costs, for decades.

You know, if you wring every drop of blood and flesh out of other survivors in the lifeboat, you can survive for weeks... Weeks!

Musk: "The solution to problem XXXXX is so simple that the 'Experts' tell me it's not possible to do it that way..."

Muskrats: "HE'S A GENIUS!"

Musk six months later: "Who knew solving problems could be hard?"

Muskrats: "A GENIUS, I TELL YOU!"
