Elon Musk Sits Down With The Babylon Bee

Elon Musk, interviewed in Austin, Texas, by the Babylon Bee and hosted on Rumble, recorded on Sunday, December 19, 2021.


Musk should precondition any interview on it not being put behind a paywall.


Frustrating! Babylon Bee is great, but the interviewers simply were not prepared. They blew so many opportunities for real in-depth discussion from Elon Musk. For example, Musk linked starting Tesla to his awareness that the world will eventually run out of fossil fuels, and we need to start moving to a sustainable source of energy. That is true, but it immediately should prompt the question – how sustainable are electric cars, batteries, solar panels, windmills that rely on Rare Earths and other scarce minerals? Are we jumping from the frying pan into the fire? Sadly, the question went unasked.

Musk is a very interesting person! He is not a smooth talker, seemingly not a guy who could make a living as a salesman; not a person who seems he could make a great pitch to financial backers. Of course, now his achievements speak for themselves, but one wonders how he raised his initial funding.

The first 44 minutes of this video are eminently skippable. The last 10 minutes are well worth listening to.

Is Elon following your post on Scanalyst ? … because full interview has just been posted by Babylon Bee and I provide link below (also I updated above original partial interview link which was not working at time of this post). Enjoy!
