“I’m Doing My Best To Help World’s Underpopuation Crisis,” Musk Says As He Welcomes Twins With Staff

2 mins read

Addressing the open secret of welcoming twins with his member of staff, world’s richest man, Elon Musk, has hinted that he was only trying to help increase and multiply the earth, saying the world currently suffers from “underpopulation crisis.”

His comments came a day after the revelation of his having twins in November with one of his top executives, Shivon Zilis. With the latest addition, Musk now has nine known children.

Musk said in a tweet: “A collapsing birth rate is the biggest danger civilization faces by far.”

As a backgrounder, Neuralink, which Musk cofounded and serves as a co-CEO of, is developing brain-computer interfaces. Zilis works there as director of operations and special projects.

You would recall that Musk has always expressed concerns about declining birth rates for years. “The world’s population is accelerating towards collapse, but few seem to notice or care,” he tweeted in 2017. Last year the Tesla CEO called population collapse “potentially the greatest risk to the future of civilization.”

One consequence of population decline that worries Musk most: “Not enough people to colonize Mars.” Musk, who founded and helms the rocket company SpaceX, aims to land humans on Mars before the end of the decade.

The entrepreneur has highlighted his efforts to curb population decline before. “Contrary to what many think, the richer someone is, the fewer kids they have. I am a rare exception,” he tweeted in May. Musk is the world’s richest person, with a fortune estimated to exceed $200 billion.

“Mark my words, they are sadly true,” Musk had said in a subsequent tweet Thursday.
