To my wonderful friends who are passionate about Biden- I only ask that you allow me to continue to fight with all I have for the person who has unflinchingly fought for the rights of every American his whole life. Who understands the existential threat of climate change. Who is owned by no one but the people he serves. Who is sharp as a tack, and who persists despite all odds, (and bc of that, has changed the way we see things, each other, ourselves — and has undeniably pushed other candidates’ platforms toward progress. ) He inspires me everyday and, in my opinion, is far and away our very best option to defeat Trump. You don’t have to agree, but please allow me to fight 4 him. I don’t say anything disparaging about Biden. I just believe in Bernie. So I ask that you allow me this expression.

The reality is, the people who have been making a lot of decisions that are corrupting our planet are able to do so because more of us aren’t involved. It’s beautiful to me how humans acclimate, but there’s a danger in that, too, because we can’t just adjust—we have to do something to stop this!

I see the idiots already crawling out to say I'm a climate change denier. I have not and do not deny climate change or even that human activity impacts the climate through emissions. I do question the catastrophic headlines and insane panic attacks.
In an interview with Rolling Stone
Climate change is the biggest threat that humanity faces this century, except for AI. I keep telling people this. I hate to be Cassandra here, but it’s all fun and games until somebody loses a f*****g eye. This view [of climate change] is shared by almost everyone who’s not crazy in the scientific community. The fundamental intention of Tesla, at least my motivation, was to accelerate the advent of sustainable energy. That’s why I open-sourced the patents. It’s the only way to transition to sustainable energy better.

I think there’s a change in weather. I am not a great believer in man-made climate change. I’m not a great believer. There is certainly a change in weather that goes – if you look, they had global cooling in the 1920s and now they have global warming, although now they don’t know if they have global warming. They call it all sorts of different things; now they’re using “extreme weather” I guess more than any other phrase. I am not – I know it hurts me with this room, and I know it’s probably a killer with this room – but I am not a believer. Perhaps there’s a minor effect, but I’m not a big believer in man-made climate change.

During a speech at the United Nations Climate Summit.
This disaster has grown beyond the choices that individuals make. This is now about our industries, and governments, around the world taking decisive, large scale action. Now must be our moment for action.
