Elon Musk warns Nuclear war chance rising rapidly responding to Mad Max theory

Elon Musk has that the “probability” of nuclear war is “rising” as tensions rise in Ukraine.

The world’s richest man was responding to a post on Twitter that included a flow chat suggesting the probabilities of various outcomes in the war.

The diagram was put out by Max Tegmark, a Swedish-American physicist, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, who calls himself ‘Mad Max’ “for [his] unorthodox ideas and passion for adventure”.

Taking to Twitter boffin Tegmark, who lists his scientific interests as “artificial intelligence to the ultimate nature of reality” make a terrifying claim.

He said above his diagram: “Here's why I think there's now a one-in-six chance of an imminent global #NuclearWar, and why I appreciate @elonmusk and others urging de-escalation, which is IMHO in the national security interest of all nations”.

The chart showed a theory about how various scenarios in the war could lead to similar situations to other wars in the past.

Musk, who was tagged in the post, responded, "Nuclear war probability is rising rapidly”.

His harrowing claim comes after Musk drew criticism when he posted a poll on the same platform where he suggested a road to “Ukraine-Russia Peace” that listed a number of criteria he felt likely and possible in a bit to stop nuclear war.

He asked users to vote on his suggestion, which included the following conditions: “Redo elections of annexed regions under UN supervision. Russia leaves if that is will of the people.

“Crimea formally part of Russia, as it has been since 1783 (until Khrushchev’s mistake).

“Water supply to Crimea assured.

“Ukraine remains neutral.”

Many Ukrainians were unhappy about the proposition, however, including the country’s wartime president Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who questioned Musk’s proposal, posting a poll of his own, asking followers which version of the Tesla CEO they preferred.

“Which @elonmusk do you like more?” He asked.

“One who supports Ukraine” or “one who supports Russia.”
