Meanwhile, the Tesla Founder called for an immediate increase in oil and gas production around the world because sustainable solutions cannot replace Russian output. “Hate to say it, but we need to increase oil & gas output immediately,” Musk wrote on Twitter on Friday. “Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures.”
Musk added that although increasing oil and gas production would affect Tesla negatively, sustainable energy solutions cannot react instantaneously to make up for Russian oil and gas exports.
