The businessman responded to a tweet about a recent study claiming there is evidence a sixth mass extinction event is on the way.
Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk has claimed that all species on Earth have a “100% chance” of going extinct in a mass extinction event unless humans become multiplanetary.
The businessman made the claim this Sunday on his Twitter account, writing: “There is a 100% chance that all species will become extinct due to the expansion of the Sun, unless humanity is made to multiplanetary life.”
Musk had responded to a tweet about a recent study, which claims there is evidence that a sixth global biodiversity mass extinction event is on the way, this time caused entirely by human activities.
There is a 💯 chance of *all* species extinction due to expansion of the sun, unless humanity makes life multiplanetary
