Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Businessinsider.com: “Elon Musk says there are "not enough people" and that the falling birthrate could threaten human civilization”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

"I think one of the biggest risks to civilization is the low birth rate and the rapidly declining birthrate," said the father of six at the Wall Street Journal's annual CEO Council.

"And yet, so many people, including smart people, think that there are too many people in the world and think that the population is growing out of control. It's completely the opposite. Please look at the numbers — if people don't have more children, civilization is going to crumble, mark my words," he said.

Musk was responding to a question about how the Tesla Bot could solve some labor issues. The Tesla Bot is Musk's planned "humanoid robot" that he says will be built using Tesla's self-driving car artificial intelligence. The Bot, said Musk during a Tesla AI event in August, would be capable of deadlifting up to 150 pounds and traveling at around 5 m.p.h.

Musk told the CEO Council the Tesla Bot could be a "generalized substitute for human labor over time."

Musk also responded to the issue of aging at the same event, saying he doesn't think people should "try to live for a super long time."
