“Hate to say it, but we need to increase oil & gas output immediately,” wrote founder and CEO of all-electric Tesla motors. See, even though Elon Musk knows it wouldn’t be in the best interest of Tesla’s stocks necessarily, it’s the RIGHT thing to do. For America AND for the world. And I don’t hate to say it at all.
“Extraordinary times demand extraordinary measures,” said Musk on the subject. “Obviously, this would negatively affect Tesla, but sustainable energy solutions simply cannot react instantaneously to make up for Russian oil & gas exports.”

I have to disagree with Harris Faulkner’s implication though.

I would have. This is exactly the kind of practical, common-sense logic I expect from Musk on an issue like this.
