“Realistically I think we have to use oil and gas in the short term, because otherwise civilization will collapse,” Musk said.

Asked if Norway should continue drilling for oil and gas, Musk said: “I think at this point some additional exploration is warranted,” adding that “one of the biggest challenges the world has ever faced is transition to sustainable energy and a sustainable economy, which will take a few decades to complete.”
