Elon Musk calls for more babies and producing more oil
when a journalist questions Elon Musk about the biggest challenges the world faces, the 51 -year -old entrepreneur responds in his own way. After having cited the transition to renewable energies, he mentioned the birth rate. "Believe me: the baby crisis is a big problem," said Tesla founder.

In the past, Musk had already predicted that the robot project could become more important than Tesla's car production over time. At the “Optimus” announcement a year ago, Tesla had put a person in a robot costume, which caused some ridicule at the time.
