Elon Musk once again voiced his support for a carbon tax at Tesla's annual shareholder meeting.




He said the policy "is really needed," and would benefit Tesla, but hurt ultimately SpaceX.




Musk said "do not worry too much about methane," the gas responsible for 20% of greenhouse emissions.


Elon Musk endorsed a carbon tax at Tesla's annual shareholder meeting on Thursday, a position he's held since 2015, even though implementing one could impact his spaceflight ambitions.Earlier this year, Musk said he suggested the policy to the Biden administration but was told it was too "politically difficult." "Can there be a carbon tax? I mean, what the hell?" Musk told shareholders, adding that while the tax would benefit Tesla, it would ultimately hurt SpaceX. He added that people should not "worry too much about methane," the gas responsible for 20% of global greenhouse emissions. According to the EPA, methane is 25 times as strong as carbon dioxide when it comes to trapping heat in the atmosphere.
