Elon Musk has shared the reason why human civilisation will “crumble” as he spoke about his concerns for the future.
The SpaceX CEO who initially warned about low birth rates proving detrimental in the future, took to Twitter to warn again that low birth rates on Earth could cause human civilization to crumble if something isn’t done about it.
The billionaire warned he would not be able to bring his dream of creating a sustainable human base of one million people on planet Mars to life unless there is a sufficient amount of people to make it happen, reports The Sun.
He told his Twitter followers on Tuesday, Jan. 18: “We should be much more worried about population collapse.”
“If there aren’t enough people for Earth, then there definitely won’t be enough for Mars,” he wrote in a follow-up tweet.
This comes weeks after he said at The Wall Street Journal’s CEO Council: “I think one of the biggest risks to civilization is the low birthrate and the rapidly declining birthrate.
“Please look at the numbers — if people don’t have more children, civilization is going to crumble, mark my words.”
