During the recent G20 Summit, member nations emphasized the need for intensified efforts in combating climate change. Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, countered the prevailing narrative by stating that climate change will not lead to the world’s demise, as some assert.

Reacting to a follower who posted that 14-year-olds are being told climate change is going to end the world as we know it and essentially nothing can be done, Musk replied that climate change definitely will not end the world as we know it.

However, “we shouldn’t be complacent about changing the chemical constituency of our atmosphere & oceans,” the billionaire stressed. “If people keep pushing hard, humanity will solve the sustainable energy problem in time,” Musk added.

Musk had previously faced criticism from the scientific and agricultural communities for his assertion that farming has a negligible impact on climate change.

In June this year, Musk posted: “Overwhelmingly, the risk of climate change is due to moving billions of tons of carbon from deep underground into the atmosphere”. “Over time, if we keep doing this, the chemical makeup of our atmosphere will change enough to induce meaningful climate change”.

The G20 Summit in New Delhi concluded with participating nations pledging to expedite their actions in response to environmental crises, particularly climate change. Additionally, they reaffirmed their commitment to achieving global net zero greenhouse gas emissions and carbon neutrality by or around mid-century.
