Elon Musk: Overpopulation Is False, ‘Earth Could Maintain a Population Many Times the Current Level’

Posted by addisethiopia / አዲስ ኢትዮጵያ on April 28, 2022

💭 የሕዝብ ከመጠን በላይ መብዛት?

👉 ኢለን ማስክ፤- “የሕዝብ ቍጥር መብዛት ሐሰት ነው፣ ‘ምድር አሁን ባለው ደረጃ በብዙ እጥፍ ሕዝብን ማቆየት ትችላለች’

Mathematics prove that you can put the world’s population in the state of Florida, easily.

Although some climate change activists claim overpopulation is a serious problem that contributes to global warming and must be curtailed, investor and business giant Elon Musk said it is a “false impression” that there are too many people in the world, and added that the “Earth could maintain a population many times the current level.”

During a recent interview on WELT, German publishing titan Mathias Dopfner said to Musk, “You once told me about population decline — the decrease of reproduction rates, birth rate — is one of the most underestimated problems of our times. Please explain.”

Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, said, “Yes. Most people in the world are operating under the false impression that we’ve got too many people. This is not true. Earth could maintain a population many times the current level. The birth rate has been dropping like crazy.”

“So, unfortunately, we have these ridiculous population estimates from the U.N. that need to be updated because they just do not make any sense,” he said. “You can look and see, what was the birth rate last year, how many kids were born, and then multiply that by life expectancy – okay, so that’s how many people will be alive in the future.”

“Is the trend for birth rate positive or negative?” said Musk. “It’s negative. And that’s the best case, unless something changes for the birth rate. Take Japan, for example. I think the population is roughly 110 million. But last year, if you take the number of children born times the life expectancy – 85 years, very impressive life expectancy – then Japan would have, I think, around 68 million people, roughly half of the current population.”

“That doesn’t tell the whole story because you have an upside-down demographic pyramid,” Musk added. “We already have an upside-down demographic pyramid, where there’s a lot of old people, very few young people. So, the upside-down demographic pyramid is unstable.”

Michael Wallace: Why Hasn’t The EU Done More To Pressure Abiy Ahmed Ali Into Ending The Siege of Tigray? Indifference?

👉 ገብርኤል 😇 ማርያም 👉 ኡራኤል 👉 ጊዮርጊስ 👉 ተክለ ሐይማኖት 👉 ዮሴፍ 👉 መድኃኔ ዓለም

👉 አየርላንዳዊ ፖለቲከኛ እና የአውሮፓ ፓርላማ አባል — ሚካኤል ዋላስ

💭 “በትግራይ ያለው አስከፊ የሰብአዊ ቀውስ እንደቀጠለ ነው። የኢትዮጵያ መንግስት ተስፋ የቆረጡ በሚሊዮን የሚቆጠሩ የትግራይ ተወላጆችን እርዳታ ለማድረስ በጣለው ውጤታማ እገዳ በአሁኑ ወቅት ፍጹም ወንጀለኛ የሆነ ጉዳይ ነው። እናም የአውሮፓ ህብረት ለጠ/ሚ አብይ አህመድ አሊ መጥፎ ቃል ለመናገር የፈራ ይመስላል። ለምንድነው የአውሮፓ ህብረት በትግራይ ህዝብ ላይ እየደረሰ ያለውን ከበባና ስቃይ እንዲያቆም አብይ አህመድ አሊ ላይ ጫና ለማድረግ ያልቻለው? ወደፊት ከኢትዮጵያ ጋር በሚኖረው የንግድ ዝግጅት ላይ ተጽዕኖ ሊያሳድር ይችላል ብሎ ፈርቶ ይሆን? በአፍሪካ ያለው የሰው ሕይወት ከሌላው ያነሰ ነውን?

👉 Irish politician and member of the European Parliament — Michael Wallace:

The terrible Humanitarian Crisis in Tigray continues. The effective embargo on aid reaching the millions of Tigrayans desperately in need, by the Ethiopian government, is absolutely criminal at the moment. And The EU is apparently afraid to say a bad word to PM Abiy Ahmed Ali. Why hasn’t the EU done more to pressure Abiy Ahmed Ali into ending the persecution of the people of Tigray..? Are they afraid it might impact on future Trade arrangements with Ethiopia? Do lives in Africa matter less?
