Elon Musk considers the Earth to be “basically empty”, contrary to what urban people believe

Published:

Musk has denounced in several times the decline in the birth rate as one of the biggest problems facing humanity.

The CEO of SpaceX and Tesla , Elon Musk, assures that people who live in cities think that the Earth is “full” of people, when in fact it is “basically empty”.

“Humans are absurdly concentrated on a small percentage of the Earth’s surface. It’s because that people in cities think the Earth is ‘full’ of people, when in fact it’s basically empty,” Musk wrote in response to a Twitter post about the low birth rate in the US

In previous comments, the tycoon said that South Korea and Hong Kong face a “population collapse“, and suggested that if Korea’s birthrates remain unchanged, the number of inhabitants of that country will be reduced to only “6% of its current population in three generations, with a majority of people older than 60 years “.

According to data from the World Bank, by 2020 the planet’s urban population represented 56% of the total, with North America being the most urbanized sector. Asia, which is the most populous continent in the world, had an urbanization of 52%, while in Africa, the second most populous continent, that segment represented 43%.

Musk has repeatedly called the declining birthrate one of the the biggest problems facing humanity, and has criticized the idea of ​​having fewer children to counteract the climate crisis. During a videoconference in mid-May, the businessman said that the world must not allow civilization “to be reduced to nothing”, noting that having children is “essential” to maintain it.
