And furthermore: “I am also in favor of nuclear power. We really should go ahead with nuclear power plants. I know that’s not exactly popular in some corners. But I think if you have well-developed nuclear plants, you should NOT shut them down right now.”
Musks was well received by attendees: oil company executives, energy analysts and government officials. Because they were all in Norway to talk about the current energy crisis, which has pushed up the prices of oil, gasoline, gas and electricity.
The founder of Tesla, who is celebrated as an environmental guru by his followers and whose electric car maker is worth more than ten times more than VW on paper, also explained: “At the same time, we have to switch to renewable energy. boost the economy as fast as possible.
