ELON Musk, in his latest wild prediction of humanity’s collapse, has warned that we could all end up in adult diapers.
The 50-year-old billionaire made the shocking remarks while discussing birth rates.
In Miami, he said we should “at least keep our numbers.”
“We don’t necessarily need to grow dramatically, but at least let’s not gradually fade away until civilization ends with us all in adult diapers under a whimper,” he warned.
The richest man in the world believes that even if we double the population, the world will actually be fine.
“Some people think that having fewer children is better for the environment,” he continued.
“This is total nonsense.”
The Tesla founder has previously sounded the alarm, saying humanity could collapse “if people don’t have enough kids,” reports Business Insider.
He also believes that Japan “may cease to exist” if birth rates there continue to fall.
Birth rates have recovered in some countries, such as the United States, after years of decline.
In the UK, data from 2021 suggests women will have an average of 1.61 children over their lifetime, the first increase since 2012.
That’s more than in 2020, when the average was 1.58 children – the lowest since World War II.
The World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that the population will increase to 9.7 billion by 2050, up from 7.7 billion in 2019.
Musk – who is currently busy negotiating a deal to buy Twitter – has a grand plan to send a million people to Mars on SpaceX rockets by 2050.
