Score One for Musk!!

We've not been friendly to Elon Musk.  His cars suck, his tunnel ain't so hot, and he's made a great living by sucking up Gummint dollars.

But he's dead-nuts right on the most important issue.

...“Most people think we have too many people on the planet, but actually this is an outdated view,” said Musk.

“Assuming that AI (artificial intelligence) is fine — we’re assuming there’s a benevolent future with AI — I think the biggest problem the world will face in 20 years is population collapse,” he continued.

“Collapse: I want to emphasize this. The biggest issue in 20 years will be population collapse, not explosion, collapse,” he added.

Ma said in response: “I absolutely agree with that, the population will be facing a huge challenge.”...

"Ma" is Jack Ma, founder of Alibaba, an ultra-large e-retailer.
