Elon Musk: ‘Civilization Will Crumble’ Without Oil And Gas In Short Term

Siladitya Ray of Forbes reports on Elon Musk’s stance on oil and gas.

The C3 Take
  • Elon Musk has stated that oil and gas will be needed in the intermediate term as the world increases its share of carbon-free energy sources.
  • Musk has also doubled-down on his support for nuclear power, calling those who oppose it “anti-human.”
  • Reliable and affordable energy is essential to driving human progress and alleviating poverty worldwide.
  • Governments should unleash markets, invest in energy innovation, and adopt a tech-neutral “all of the above” energy strategy to reduce the impacts of climate change.

“Speaking at a conference in Norway, Musk claimed ‘civilization will crumble’ if the world halted the use of oil and natural gas and called for continued drilling and exploration of fossil fuel sources, Reuters reported.”
